Heh! I wasn't layering them until you made me paranoid!

I think I'll need to do a real stress test, try to cycle the moisture content

as to using radial grain layout (and ease of shaping), or the more
traditional circumferential grain (and more difficult shaping, but possibly
better resistance to splitting)
