    I go the other route - I like good tools. My...

    I have not experimented with using a food dehydrator for drying wood blanks or heard of this from other turners. (I prefer to air dry wood.)

    I forgot to mention - if you are leaving the firewood outside or in a relative cold place then just bring in enough to burn, I believe the insects will stay dormant and won't come out to mate and lay...
