Drying Rough Bowls Quickly By Dave Smith, Longview, WA
Fred Holder was kind enough to publish an article I wrote about drying bowls in More Woodturning. I am not sure where you can obtain a copy of the

On a bowl simply gather the paper around the rim and secure with a couple turns of masking tape. On a closed form the paper can be tucked into the opening and held in place with masking tape across the opening. The opening must be open to allow air circulation. Place the bowl upside down on a rack so air can circulate into the opening. Record the weight and date on the bottom of the paper. When the weight stops decreasing it is ready to finish turn. Small bowls will stop losing weight in one week or
