really a neat piece—how long did it lay around before it was turned—i’m turning some birch it has some of the markings like your aspen—-was thinking maybe i should let age longer maybe 6 months or so thanks for posting

thanks again guys. Dean, this log was sitting around for a few years, coated with a wax-emulsion end-grain sealer. It was still a little green inside, but not enough to make the material shift. I wouldn’t be sure which way to go with your Birch to prevent it from splitting up; whether to rough it green or not. I had about 50/50 splitting with these very soft aspen logs. Best of luck.
