oak slab curing questions
I recently had a very large red oak cut down on my property. All the beautiful wood! I got a large slab cut from the base to make a coffee table. The contractor did not have any info on curing, yet he said it was of the utmost importance that it be done correctly. Do I just need to air dry it? Should I moisten it occassionally so that it doen't dry too quickly and crack (like concrete)? Do you lie it flat or keep it upright and flip it now and then? Any suggestions for a base as this is a LARGE piece of wood?
