Hello all! This site came highly recommended from a respected individual, very nice site you have here!
My question; Today a got a Cherry stump, roughly 18”X24” and 15” tall. I’m very unfamiliar with woodworking in the ways I’m trying now. With this stump, the tree was fell 6 months ago, stump was cut yesterday. I cut a 3”X3”18” piece seperately to dry (using it for pipe blocks)
I currently have them in plastic bags (few air holes) stored in my “office” which has no A/C other than a fan. This was advice given me by trusted artisans.
My question is this; how long would this stump most likely take to dry this way? Would it be shortened if I cut it into more similar sized blocks?
I’m having to use my chainsaw (20” Poulan, pulpwood chain) to cut it due to the density of Cherry. I intend to get a hardwood or rip chain as soon as finances & fiancee’ allow such things, lol.
Also, I’m trying to dry some Walnut, Oak and Cedar for the same or similar purposes. Average size I’m cutting these to is roughly 6-12”
