Hi Mark,
I prefer to mill sooner rather than later, as the wood is softer and easier to cut when green.
To properly season a 30" log would take decades in the round.

An old boy who runs a little mill down the road told me he once bought some oak sawlogs from a farmer, who had dry stored them in a shed for 30+ years. The sap wood was totally dust, but the heartwood was as green as the day it was cut.

Never used an Avant, I believe they’re very similar, in fact (well I read somewhere) the firms were linked till an acrimonious split a good while ago.

 

The blue matched my truck better.
