Beautiful turning stock is a lot less beautiful when it's full of checks that render it unusable.

So, how do you keep this wood around until you're ready to used it…without checking ?

Simple…just store it inside a sealed plastic trash bag…with a handful of damp sawdust.

This will slow down the drying process, hopefully, allowing your stock to dry out without checking.
