How do you dry a log without cracking it?
To keep the bark edge on a slab, cut the wood during the winter. Wood that has been outside, especially in winter, should be brought to room temperature before you apply Pentacryl. Completely saturate the wood with Pentacryl by soaking or brushing it on. After treatment, the wood must be allowed to dry evenly.
What is the best way to dry logs?
Stack firewood in a single row up off the ground so the sun and breeze can draw the moisture out the cut ends most wood has a 30-50% moisture content when cut and you'll need to get it down to around 15-20% before you can burn it efficiently.
How do you dry logs at home?
The ideal location for drying timber is off the ground in a sunny and airy location. cover the logs with waterproof material but don't seal the wood as the air will need to circulate.

How long does it take for logs to dry?
In fact, expect most types of wood to take about one year per inch of thickness to dry out. If it's a two-inch log, that means you'll need to let it sit outdoors for two whole years before it's dry enough to efficiently burn. There are many other factors that affect the rate at which wood dries.
How do you know if wood is dry enough to burn?
Color. Color fades over time. Shape. Splitting wood speeds up the drying process. Weight. As wood dries, it loses its moisture content and becomes lighter. Hardness. Drying wood becomes harder, making it more difficult to split or dent. Bark. Cracking. Sound. Smell.
How do I stop checking logs?
Coat the exposed end grain of the logs or boards with a thick layer of paint, varnish or a commercial green-wood sealer to prevent moisture from escaping too quickly. Wood loses moisture 10 to 15 times faster through the ends than it does through the faces.
How do you seal furniture logs?
