Vicki, looks like you have a great plan. Here is a free Wood Handbook with lot of technical info but if just go to the chapters you need to answer your questions and will find a lot of charts and pictures that explain more than just the words written.

MSINC, no there is nothing written in stone when it comes to drying or turning wood. Everyone has a different experience even with wood from the same tree. Still have a few facts or principles have to follow to increase our success rate in both drying, turning and finishing. This time of year depending upon species water weight can exceed 100% wait till winter and sap not running and percentages goes down. Wood gains and loses moisture through out its life due to relative humidity in the area.
