Hi, well I purchased a Rikon bandsaw a few months ago and have been enjoying learning how to use it safely. Friends have been dropping off green Cuban mahogany and Neem which grow here in south Florida. We use this wood in turning projects and will store most until it dries.

So what should I seal it with. I have a lot of wax that I can melt and dip the ends of the wood into. Is this recommended? What are the alternatives?

Hello Steve,

I did a search here using ‘green wood’ and got a bunch of suggestions on sealing the wood.

My guess is wax would probably work but it might be a bit of work; check out the search tool it may be more helpful than my opinion LOL!
