In support of my obsession to build some chairs and stools I have been doing some research and it seems than the better chairs are made from materials that a riven, not cut, from a log. I have also been looking for a supplier of such logs and have not had too much of a problem finding people to give me their trees.
My problem not is that I am not sure what the “shelf life” of a log might be. I am sure that I will be able to get more logs than I can use real quick. Does anyone here know how long I can expect a log to last so that I can get riven pieces for chairs and stools out of it? Also, is there any way to extend the shelf life of the log and make it last longer?
Thanks for the input.
