Just found a very unique black walnut slab consisting of two tree trunks joined. It does have a crack about 1/4 of the way up which I believe I can fix with ties. Here is my question. I want to buy it now but wont be able to work with it until the spring. Should I store it inside in a heated room or inside in an unheated room for the winter?


Should introduce myself as well. Just joined---I have messed around with wood for years but this is my first attempt at the rough cut walnut. Retired last year so have more time to pursue hobbies.

Almost none of my wood is kiln dried- so that really makes no difference- in my opinion. If it does not need further drying inside outside makes no difference. Keep it dry and it will be fine. I bring what I am going to use into the shop 2-3 weeks before I need it.
