I need advise on when to cut cherry logs to use for railings inside a studio. We cut some in May and used a draw knife to peel them. We left them inside a non heated building but one the sap was running when they were cut. They also cracked as they dried – apparently they dried too fast. We still want to use them as railings and some larger ones as support for a roof – so we need to re-cut. We need advise on what time of year to cut them and how to let them dry without cracking.

Thanks very much – I’m new to posting as well. My thumb and I learned about push sticks a few years ago.
Luckily I still have my thumb.
