    Price for milled cedar

    I agree with squaredy , I’ve milled a lot of cedar with my team over the years, and it’s dried quite differently, opened Up. A tree I’d milled two yrs ago and struggled to get two decent planks,without shakes, but others dried perfectly, bit hit and miss so as above, in saying that,always looking for cedar ha ha

    I agree, there’s a high chance in large oak slabs cupping when dry, so I end up ripping them in half,which they then fit my 24 inch planner and rejoin with the domino jointer, eliviates the “ how do I get that flat” or hours of tedious routering in a sled.

    How should I treat these yew slices?

    Pentecryl, is a very expensive option, and with my experience just as much chance with or without it, bit hit and miss, I,ve dried yew discs before by keeping them in controlled circumstances,ie,under cover outside for a while,the. Six months in my barn, then introduce them to the workshop,so slowly drying them,this seems too work, but some still crack slightly,
