Best way to process / dry / store walnut tree's for furniture & woodturning ?
Otherwise I wouldnt think twice of cutting such beautiful old tree's down ( I will be replacing them also:-) )
Im also a semi skilled carpenter and starting to learn woodturning , so I am thrilled at the chance to keep this walnut, and make some beautiful things with it, especially with how beautiful the color and grain of walnut is , not to mention how expensive !
I was wondering if it would be better to take it to a small local mill and have it all cut 1st , then stack and dry store ???
I guess the pieces I would need for woodturning can be left in log form ???
Im just after any general tips and advice on how to go about it all , if leaving the logs as they are until dry , or having it professionally cut into planks 1st is ideal.
