Black Cherry Seasoning?
Something that has just come to mind, now that I'm getting obsessed with a new Grizzly G0555LX bandsaw that is being delivered tomorrow, is that there is a nice tall, and straight black cherry tree at the rear of my lawn that I hear calling me. All it does is drop cherries on my lawn & attract raccoons, so I'm thinking of taking it down & using it for something besides firewood. It should have a beautiful grain.
I've never used a tree before for woodworking projects. Once down what is a good way to "season" it to minimize splitting? I'm thinking I should probably take it down soon to let it start drying over the winter & get a head start on the process. This could be interesting! Looks like there's a whole new world out there! LOL
