Rock elm
« on: December 21, 2011, 08:23:44 PM »
 Milled my first rock elm log today, yard tree from my neighbor that he had no use for and I wanted to mill only because I have never sawn one nor have I ever seen the lumber. My question is this, does rock elm behave badly like red elm when drying and if so how do you guys attempt to keep it flat? It will be air dried outside this winter with the ends sealed so I am hoping that by spring it has lost enough moisture to not twist and warp too badly ;D

 I have no use for the lumber either but can never pass up a free log even if it did have a nail in it. It was either mill it or make firewood  and with the limbs there is enough firewood to see how rock elm burns.

I have never sawn rock elm, but I don't expect that it would be any different than red (slippery) elm.  Let us know how it behaves.
