Mark Mandell - Gone Round in New Jersey
1 Slice it thick, 2-1/2 > 3" "cookies" that leave you wood to work with when dry. Don't bother with the Anchorseal.

2 Drill a 1" hole through the pith; you'll fill it later with a dowel. Since 95% of your slabs will be end grain, they're gonna dry fairly quickly.

3. The thickness will give you enough wood to surface the faces to level in case it warps a bit

4. Remember that you'll be working with almost all end-grain. It soaks up finish like a sponge .
