Hey all! I’m new here and excited to be a part of this great site. I’ll skip the personal introduction for now other than saying I live in southeast Missouri and am owner of a good chunk of wooded land. So I have access to lots of various lumber primarily including white oak, walnut, and cedar amount others. So I’m just getting started on this woodworking, but have been wanting to for quite some time.

I cut down a couple cedars the other day and skinned them. Looked at them yesterday and they have some thin longitudinal cracks, and they seemed to have warped some. Can this be avoided? Should I leave the bark on a while? Thanks!
