Drying newly milled

595 Views 10 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Go4it
I mill a lot of my wood. In the drying process I paint the ends but still ( after 6
Months ) End up with a lot of curved and cracked ends. I going to mill up about 300’ of cherry wood and would like to have a better outcome. Any ideas?

Sealing the ends prevent the fast drying but wood still has stresses in it and nothing is going to stop stress cracking.
