Planking with Alaskan mill

Recommended Posts

I’ve been planking nearly all the trees I’ve cut down  that seems a waste to turn into fire wood over the past couple of years ,  but one tree I took down is simply amazing however i’am worried about it warping and splitting I’ve stacked it with batons and stored in a ventalted lock up about 6 months ago and all still seems ok I no that London plane is proned to warping is there anything else I can do to preserve these planks

As rough says paint the ends.. heavily! Maybe come up on the ends of the plank six inches or so too? Not 100% sure though, somebody else may have a view o that.
And add weight, then more weight on that again! Don't be shy with the stickers either, use plenty of them and strap the lot together. Will be worth the effort, some of those pieces are crying out to cup and twist!
Beautiful colouring
