Hi, first time posting on this forum. My brother-in-law and I recently started building furniture and we are really starting to get into it and we would like to try our hand at milling our own lumber. We have a few cherry logs and a couple walnut logs that we are hoping to use. The plan is to run the logs through my uncle's bandsaw mill and then air dry the wood in a barn with plenty of air flow. I'm wondering if there are any tips/tricks we should use to make sure we get the best quality board? Anything we should be doing for log prep? We have one log that has been cut and sitting for a few months, we were told this is bad for the wood. Is that true? The other logs will be fresh cut when we mill. Thanks for the advice.
