Any oily, greasy, solvent soaked wipe should be out of your shop yesterday, if your house is still there. If you don't have a approved container take them out and burn them, hang on a fence till crusty or throw in a bucket of water. I don't even like to pile up damp wood chips (ask old hay farmers).

I use a metal can with a metal lid.
No oxygen means no ignition.
A pail with water in it also works well, also covered or a weight to submerge the rags.
Once the oil is cured (hardened) it's no longer a threat.

Not sure if this is the right place to put this but here goes.
My brother is very sick and called me and asked if I could make him a Urn. I can but i need someplace that I can buy a solid 10" long but 8" x *8 square. I would like to use a spalted type of wood. I can not glue up boards for this project. I could cut a tree down but I don't the time to wait for the drying of the wood. Any Ideas?

Questions like yours can be put in Turning Talk

What you want to look for is called a vessel blank
Ebay often has some good prices for large blanks like this.
