Waiting For Wood to Dry & Odd Looking Finials

The walnut that came down last in the neighbor's yard last summer is slowly drying. To be exact, it's at 18% moisture content, according to the handy dandy meter. I suppose it needs to come down to 15%, which is what my "highly" dried lumber is at. I guess 15 is all I can get in a damp basement in the Pacific NW.

Also turned some weird looking finials for the outdoor deck last weekend. Turning is clearly not a strong suit at this point. Well, neither is anything else at this point...
