Do you have to let wood dry before carving?

On average, it takes wood 5-8 weeks to dry before carving when set in perfect conditions. The time required depends a lot on the humidity and temperature of the area where the wood is drying. While there are ways to speed this process up, the most reliable method requires around 2 months of drying.
