My city has some beautiful specimens of ash in the streets, and occasionally must be removed (for sickness, buildings, etc.).. This time I was lucky enough to rescue this tree. I hope to use it for many projects. The logs could not be table are to be used on the lathe.
For anyone who is lucky enough to find a treasure and I recommend to see video of Brian Havens estel:
Thanks for the tips Brian!
I used latex paint (as a Anchorseal) to seal cuts and avoid drying cracks faster until you have time to cut with a chainsaw. Tables I cut with a band saw on a carpenter friend workshop.
Greetings to all.

Mi ciudad tiene unos ejemplares muy bonitos de fresno en sus calles, y de vez en cuando deben ser retirados (por enfermedad, construcciones, etc.). En esta oportunidad tuve la suerte de poder rescatar este árbol. Espero poder utilizarlo para mucho proyectos. Los troncos que no se pudieron tablear van a ser utilizados en el torno.
Para quien tenga la suerte de encontrarse un tesoro así, les recomiendo vean estel video de Brian Havens:
Gracias por los consejos Brian!
Utilicé pintura de látex (a modo de Anchorseal) para sellar los cortes y evitar rajaduras por secado rápido hasta que tenga tiempo de cortarlos con la motosierra. Las tablas las corté con una sierra sin fin en lo de un carpintero amigo.
Saludos a todos.

Great finding Martin. Late for me

I was given by a neighbor two ash pieces, and let them dry in the garden as Brian did. What a shame.
I should have watch the video 6 months ago.

I am wiser now. Thank you

Gran hallazgo Martin. Tarde para mí

Un vecino me dió dos troncos de fresno tambien. Y los dejé secar en el jardín como Brian. Qué pena.
Debí ver el video hace 6 meses.

Ahora soy más sabio . Gracias
