Turning Archive 2006
I have just cut some birch logs into 4"x 12" (roughly) chunks.
These will be made into coasters (or whatever they call the item hot plates are put on to protect a table).
I need to preserve the outside bark on them for appearance.
Should I sticker and stack them in a pile, or sticker them on their side in a row for best drying?
Last time I did this, I waited a few years for the logs to dry and then cut them to size when I was ready to use them.
Mostly, they get surfaced (both sides) and finished.
Some might get feet, some hollowed out, some a lazy suzy, sometimes an inlay.
A few cracks can be tolerated.
