  • Time - Taiko drum logs dry for 5 - 10 years before carving

      Time is the only solution - it has to season and dry out to below 1% moisture and stabilize before you do the final carving, or it'll crack all to heck.

      You can kiln dry it for the finish, but it takes a few years of natural drying first.

      BTW Daniel, I see you went with a drop-ceiling instead of trying for a more period Tin or Restored Plaster. Oh, well.
