Cut quite a few turning blanks from this, most of them are still drying.

Just another small bowl, made from a crotch piece.
I like the edge you get from crotch pieces.
When turning, the moisture content was still around 25%.
My experience is that applying a finish slows the drying enough to prevent cracking.
There might still be some warping though. We'll see.

Finish: TungOil, a Chrismas present
Some toolmarks are still visible but I'm improving (slowly).
Initially I used Rustins Shellac based Sanding Sealer, applied with a paintbrush.
After drying, there was an ugly white shine with brushmarks clearly visible.
Maybe caused by the high moisture content of the wood?
On the inside, a lot of toolmarks showed up more pronounced under the sealer. 
I didn't like it at all so I sanded the piece again and tried with TungOil.
