Re: Cutting tree "slabs" for projects
Cutting with a band saw would create less waste than a chain saw. After it is cut into slabs, you do need to seal the ends, stack and sticker. You need air circulating through the pile to get even drying. Air drying generally takes about a year for each inch thickness. 1½" slabs would take about a year and a half but an 8" diameter log would take about 8 years.
