A friend gave me several walnut logs in Sept. I finally got around to trying something with them however they are still wet inside. Guess I have to do some research. Do I let the logs dry before cutting them or do I cut them and then let them dry? Will they dry better in cold air or warm air There is just so much to learn with woodworking. I truly love woodworking and learning new things.

If you are planning on using the logs for smaller items like what you made (which is a very nice job btw) I would cut them while wet but making sure I removed the pith (very center of the log). then I would dry them using the same method that I use for bowls Once they were dry, I would drill the holes for the candle holders or make other fun projects with them.

Have your say...
