Mimosa has the potential to be stunningly beautiful wood, provided it doesnt crack as it dries/shrinks…and it almost always does. Using a crack prevention product when you slice it up is almost necessary to ensure its survival. It will take around 6 months to dry if you cut it 1” thick, longer if you slice it thicker, if you put it indoors after a month or so of air drying. As always, it’s gonna be up to you as to whether or not it will be worth it.
