Since I posted the question about alcohol drying, I have used it with great success.  Immerse the rough-turned bowl in alcohol for a few hours (I have left in the alcohol overnight with no adverse effects.) then take it out, wrap in brown-paper-bag type paper, leaving the top open, and put it aside for a few days.  The result so far has been dry bowls with minimal warping and no cracks.

Just found yet another drying method. Apparently it's been around for awhile. Haven't used it, but it's less expensive than buying gallons of denatured alcohol.

You'll find that there mixed results on LDD.  In fact, you'll find many who have gotten no better results from DNA.  Most of the time they have not followed the protocol properly.  What ever works for you is the one to stick with.
