One thing I don’t see mentioned, but I always do is to make sure you brush or broom off all or as much as possible {no real reason you cant get it all} the dust that will be all over the boards when you get them back. Band mills leave a lot of fine dust all over the wood when cut this way. I have one, saw a lot of logs and deal with this same issue.
You want the dust gone from the wood before you stack it to dry. Saw dust holds moisture, promotes mold and can, at the very least, discolor the wood….none of which you want. Best of luck with the wood.
