How is your wood supply? Do you have problems with cracking even before you rough turn your pieces? Like to have a bit more of a scientific approach and process for drying your wood?
Well maybe we can help, WGNC is happy to welcome one of our local wood experts and assistant professor from NC State University Dr. Frederik Laleicke.
Dr. Laleicke will discuss some of the methods that he recommends for drying wood for woodturners to help the cracking and defects we all like to avoid. He will share wood samples to help with understanding wood anatomy and the characteristics important to woodturning. He will also provide some recommendations on different moisture meters that can be used including price and quality.
