ve read and looked at many projects this forum. I have been moved to post because i recently won 8 white oak logs on an online auction. My questions are about drying this lumber. I currently have it under a bridge out of the elements and sunlight. I stickered the piles with 3/4×1” pine. I am wondering if my set looks okay and if anyone has advice to give a first timer in the drying process. I anchorsealed all the ends of the log. The 6/4 dimensional lumber inThe picture will be used for raised garden beds so I am wondering what the best mositure content is for outdoor use? The other stack is 8/4 and 6/4 slabs that I am sure I can find a use for down the road. I also had a log that I think is curly white oak. I was hoping someone wiser and more experienced could provide some insight. This piece had a tremendous amount of pressure when we were milling so we left it as( 2)16/4 beams that are 10” wide by about 7 ft. I figured it would probably get squirrely drying but would be able to remill in 3 years or so?
Just to summarize I am wondering
2. Any advice for a first timer air dying white oak.
3. Are some of these boards curly?
4. Are pine stickers ok to use?
Sorry for the jumbled post but any advice is appreciated. I don’t want to ruin this lumber.
