Alcohol Soaking

Welcome to my blog on alcohol assisted drying of wood. The intent is to provide an avenue for information sharing about the process. Much time has been spent answering individual emails from around the world and countless questions on many woodworking forums. As time permits I will share information about current pieces I am drying as well as the final outcome in the form of pictures of finished pieces.

Alcohol Bowl Drying on David Marks Website

Dick Parr hosted David Marks at his home after a demonstration to the local turning club in 2005. Dick explained the alcohol drying process while showing his turnings to David. David used the procedure on a large redwood burl piece he needed to complete in a limited time frame. The piece was successfully dried, completed, and delivered on time. David has subsequently added the alcohol drying process to his Alternative Ways To Dry Wood Turnings
on his web site.
