    I've had pieces in the bath for over a week, so I suspect those long-forgotted=n bowld will be just fine.

    Well..................
    they ought to be soaked throughout

    I wouldn't think it should hurt the wood at all, but for sure

    Stu one time I had a bowl soak for 10 days and some others for 4 to 5 days. Not a problem with any of them. If it is a wood that I know probably will crack I will leave it in the DNA longer maybe 72 hrs but most I leave for 24 hrs.
