Found some fire wood out back and really interested in figuring out how to craft from the raw state. I’ve learned that it is beneficial to split logs so that they break in there natural weak spots. This wood was cut (chain saw) for firewood and really not dried properly as they were just planned to be used as fuel, so I may not be able to use them. I’ve also read that logs should be painted on the end not to dry on the ends to quick and I’m guessing why mine have a crack like pattern sort of like a clock face. Also wondering (after slicing one open that didn’t look like it had any knots or branches coming out of it, why I found two knots in the middle.
Any info would be awesome.
