    ive got some small (lengthwise) dogwood logs outside in a covered rack. I got them about 6-8 months ago and they have a pretty good split to them since I didn’t remove pith at that time. A couple had a 2” hole going down them that made removal of pith nature’s doin. Loaded some up in DW kiln, and set one (12x7x3.5) aside as a possible natural edge bowl. Have more to process but wanted to see how these go. The pink and spalting in one of the pieces is pretty cool.

    Nice thing about having two light sockets in it is ability to somewhat regulate temp. I start with 40 W (about 85 degF) and build up 20 watts at a time using 40, 60 and 100watt bulbs. Seems like about 10F for every 20 watt addition.
