I hear you about not wanting to wait, but once you get a few blanks drying/dried, you’ll never need to wait again. Right now I have about 300 blanks rough turned. I can pull 100 right now that are ready to turn.

I just pulled one blank out and rough turned it to see how it turns (pun intended) out. I wrapped the edge as I saw in a couple of YT videos. I'll check in a couple of weeks to see how badly, or not, that it cracks.
Thanks for all of the replies.
