>We have found several spalted maple and river birch. (600 to 900 bfd of lumber & 25 to 35 turning blanks) . We need to know how to store blanks and how to dry them successfully.
Also going prices for splated turning blanks and sizes they need to be cut into.
We have chestnut, pecan,walnut and black cheery crotches. we also need to know what percentage of moisture they need to be before turning them. We have read several different opinons.
