You lucky dog. Resaw in various thicknesses, coat the ends, sticker, and dry slowly unless you have a drying kiln avaliable. Some would say to steam the wood to even out the color differences between sap and heart wood.
Most mills will just flat saw the logs, so you’ll have come pith (the very center of the logs). THat isn’t a bad thing, but most would not want that “center” cut in the finished wood.
