I believe Miliput was first used to repair ceramic items and it is fantastic for that purpose. It sands well and is easy to shape and takes a finish really well. As far as the age or dryness of the wood, there are two approaches. You can turn green wood very easy. Turn the green wood to a rough shape of your finished project then coat it with wax or some type sealer. Then place it in a paper sack along with the shavings and let it dry slowly for up to a year. Check the moisture content with a quality moisture meter and try to shoot for 10%-15%. Dry wood can be turned but you will be sharpening your chisels more often. Ton's of video's on YouTube about wood turning.
