There is not a specific answer to drying time. Drying time differs depending on the temperature, relative humidity, type of wood and its thickness. If the piece is a turning that is finished thin, then it may be dry enough to apply a finish in 1-3 months. If the piece is large, like a carving or cross-cut section, it may take 1-3 years to completely dry. Note that the wood must be dried slowly (especially hardwood) in an unheated area away from direct sunlight and any air movement. To help slow the drying time, wood can be covered with a cardboard box (leave a gap on the bottom to allow air to still reach the wood). Larger pieces can also be coated with the End Grain Sealer to slow down and help even out drying.
