You did a good job cutting and stacking, But with the green stickers, you're going to have sticker stane lumber. You have to use dry dry stickers.

Peter you are correct and that would be better.  I so far have never had a mark that would not plane out.  Dry is better, and this is sorta the Sunday afternoon, get er done.

Hope your ok. From my experience elm should not be cut less than 5/4".

A little tincture of time and all my urinary symptoms are gone!!!.  I planed a live edge slab of elm last night.  air dried under top cover for a year.  MC 17%.  planed out nice starting at just over 2 inches and ended up 1.75".  for a buddy to make a TV stand with pipe "industrial" legs.  no smell now.



 

the check was in the log before I milled it, in the log.



 

I have another 6 slabs from this tree 10 feet long and the widest is 31 inches wide.

Nice looking wood Doc! Do you have a pic of the wood wet/finished? I have a couple elm trees in que, and I thought they looked more orangish to me? But then again maybe they ain't elm ???  The top one has been cut for a year, but was similar to bottom left in color.

Your top one is the same color these were when I got them and milled them, had sat for a few years.  I gave several pieces away after planning, and no one wanted me to dump water or finish on them! :D

Thanks cfarm, works for me and my small scale "operation".  Still enjoying the jelly we won and you so generously donated last Christmas.
