Drying newly milled

596 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?

In milling the cherry wood the inside is rotten... but that’s good.. after you clean it out it’s perfect for river tables.... BUT it takes 6 months for it to dry to see how it turns out
