Carving or turning green wood is certainly faster and easier than working with dry stock. But sometimes the extra work involved with slowly and carefully drying the wood to avoid checking hardly seems worth the trouble. Not any more! Pentacryl is a revolutionary new product that combats the negative effects of drying by displacing water and moisture in the wood fibers. Your wood will dry quicker and more evenly, and the Pentacryl residue even lubricates your tools as you work. This non-toxic solution doesn't stain the wood or affect finishing in any manner. The recommended method of application is total immersion, but the product can also be brushed or sprayed. Compared to the traditional wax coating method, you'll find the drying time reduced by as much as 90% with Pentacryl. On average, a green 6" x 6" x 2" bowl blank would absorb 2 ounces of solution, be fully saturated in a week, and, if turned thin, dry in about three weeks.

So you’ve decided to rough turn or carve a green (wet) project, and set it aside to dry.  Did you realize the wood may contain over 250% more water before it is dried, depending upon it’s size and mass?  Over the long period of time it may take to air dry your project, it can develop grain cracks and checks if not protected.  What are checks in the wood?  Well, they’re not cashable checks to take to the bank, but end grain splits that can be prevented allowing you to reap the benefits of a beautifully finished item that can be profitable!  Both cracks and checks can be fixed by cutting out those areas and replacing with segmented glue-ups, but perhaps that’s not what you had in mind.

    Very Good

    I cut a lot of wood on my property that I season for later use. This stuff ensures that the wood dries slowly and evenly, without splitting. When it's time to use the wood, there's no removal necessary.
