My dad gave me some black walnut that was cut probably 30 years ago. It is blocks and half rounds 10"-15" wide and about 2-3 foot in length. The ends were never sealed. I have been working on milling it to 1" boards so I can use it.

My ? is, do I need to stack and sticker it or or do you think it is dry enough that it won't warp?


Thanks,

Jeff

Any time wood is cut it will react to differences of moisture content. The inside is always a little different from the outside, even kiln dried wood will exhibit some movement.

I would stack and sticker just to be safe.

Sounds like there may be some nice bowl blanks there...

+1. Despite it's age, there will still be deltas between the inner MC% and the shell%. Definitely sticker it after milling.
