Always bring it in and work there and leave it there. When you start a carving you are opening the wood to the elements. If it has started to cure, the elements will undo a lot of what has been done as far as drying.Now IF you are talking about moist freezing cold weather and you bring it in and start opening it up without letting it stabalize, then it will split wide open, so from outside to inside and vice versa you need to let it stabalize for 24 hours or so.If you have an outdoor shop work outdoors no problem. Just remember when you open up a log, all those pores will begin to leak or lose fluid at a faster pace, so just think it thru depending on the conditions
