If I want to seal the ends of a log, do I need to buy the wax or will latex paint work?:dontknow:
Andy, how long do you think it will take a 6" to 8" diameter, 2ft long wild cherry log to dry using Anchor Seal. My neighbor's wild cherry lost the top in a wind and she wants it down...I'll be glad to oblige!
If it were mine, I would take the bark off and split it with a froe (cause I have one; a wedge if you don't - just don't use a hatchet or axe unless you are really sure you will get it in one blow) and figure it would be the better part of a year or longer, depending on where it is stored.
I assume that when you split it and remove the bark, you coat the entire log with Anchor Seal?
