Got future peach wood

The reason I say future is cause this sucker going to take a couple of years to dry out. Dad wanted to get rid of this peach tree, so I was glad to assist.

I have a question tho. Should I spray this log with a pesticide before I store it in my basement? I keep my basement around 65% humidity and a box fan circulating air most of the year. The last peach log was a little smaller and it worked great after a year, but I did find a creature living in it.

Peach wood is pretty bland looking. Don't expect too much.

You must have different peach trees than me. Any I've cut look more like poplar.

Looks good to me, the grain has nice character.

I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning, that's as good as they're going to feel all day.

The wood on that box came from a smaller tree. Maybe had more knots then the one I just cut down. Steve Neul may be right this one might look popular. I guess I find out. Good time to invest in a good bandsaw.

Thanks tjdux, I love the smell of peach wood. Since I cut it green maybe bugs won't be an issue, so I'll lean it up in the corner of my basement and in a couple of years maybe I'll have a good bandsaw.

Don't throw away the scraps. Peach makes great wood for smoking meat!
