red maple log sealing help

Brad Risley
>A neighbor down the street has 2 red maple logs out for recycle. They are 18 to 20 inches in dia and each about 5 ft long. I want to pick them up for practice bowl/ platter blanks. Should I cut them up now or wait until I have time to turn them? Also more importantly how should I seal them? I have oil and latex paint and primers on hand but no immediate access to any anchorseal. Help!!
