In my area, and for the sorts of stuff I build – I would not debark it, and would cut some 1-1/4” and some 2-1/2” slabs out of it. I would paint the ends (to keep from checking and cracking) and stack it under the deck (with stickers) to dry… I concur with Jim, in this area it is normally about a year per inch when cut into slabs, Crank49 is also right different climates (areas) have a lot to do with drying time… Hope this helps..

I was wondering how large the log was too, but no matter what size it is.. It is a good score…
