Re: Big Slabs in an old sawmill building.

Barry Irby
Dick I was thinking about spraying them with BoraCare. Should have done it, and may still go back and spray into the sticker spaces. Wonder if drenching the barks and outer edges would do any good? I have no experience with Timbor. Have you sprayed it? How was that?

And I agree, I would sell some now and be done with them.

Most of them are clear and straight grained. There are some defects like splits in the tree. They turned those horizontal and tried to confine them to one or two slabs. There is very little of the "character" the Internet seems to like to fill with epoxy.
