Thanks Mike and Claude. The particular wood I’m thinking of in this case is some cherry cut down last fall into about 15” rounds. sealed the ends with Anchorseal and stored in my unheated garage. Yesterday I split a piece in half to make some small box turning blanks. I got 4 nice blanks that will be cut in half to make 8 lidded boxes. there were 2 2.5” x 1.5” x 13’ scraps I planned to carve spoons from. The wood was still damp but not exceedingly so. I stuck one end of each in large cups of water. Today they have soaked up water about 5 inches. I see what happens when I try carving tomorrow.
