Welcome Kevin! Nice Hackberry! (only woodworkers will say that---all my coffee buddies have not nice things to say about Hackberry)
I'm 5-6 hrs south of you.
I use Hackberry occasionally for turning. Anchorseal is just fine. Don't leave the wood outside on the ground--it can/does rot quickly and there are some beetles that have rather large grubs that really like Hackberry--maybe you're lucky and they haven't found your stash yet.
Everyday--learning to liberate nice things from ordinary chunks of wood
and I like gnarly wood--outcome is always better than the start.
