this is a question that has probably been answered on this site already but i've missed the answer.
i've been learning woodturning using green wood...following the formula of rough turning oversize, soaking in dna for about 24 hours, and then drying in a brown paper sack until the mositure reading shows the blank is dry.
i started with two gals of dna and have added more as that initial amount wouldn't cover the work but....
isn't the dna being diluted with the water from the green blank? plus there must be evaporation adding to the equation. so how do you test to see if your dna bath has become too diluted to be efficient??? i've tried an antifreeze tester with floating balls but it was inconclusive...none of the balls floated???
