I just arrived from spending Christmas at my in-laws and brought back these two cherry logs.
They were two cherry trees that my father in law planted about 15 years ago and now he decided to cut down for some unknonw reason to me.
I knew he was going to do it so I begged him to keep them for me. At first he wanted to leave them on the ground until I went to take them, as I told him that by then they would be useless he cut them and stored them in the garage. They have not split yet so I hope to get some useful wood to make some small items or tool handles at least.
They measure about 4 feet long and 8-9" diameter. What should I do now? resaw them on my bandsaw and store them for about 2 years I guess, but what thickness should I cut the boards? I've been thinking about 1'25 inches.
Any suggestion will be appreciated.
The rest of the pics where taken last week, it snowed and left about 5-8" of snow, not much compared to what you get in some places there but the temperature went down to 3.2 Farenheit wich is pretty cold here!
Comments and suggestions welcome as always.
