I’m not sure if its inappropriate to post here – but I am looking for advice on cherry logs as well.
We have a number of volunteer cherry trees growing on our property. We want to cut a couple of the larger ones to use as posts in our studio. Perhaps 6” in diameter a little over 5’ long. We also want to cut a number of smaller ones 4” in diameter 8’ long to use as holders for glass on the stair railing. We cut a few in May and took the bark off – left them in an unheated building they have all cracked badly. Advice on what time of year to cut them and how to store them so they do not crack would be lovely – should we have left the bark on through the drying process?

Thanks
Barb
