Air drying some walnut slabs
« on: June 03, 2019, 10:31:41 PM »
 

 

 

Nothing like that feeling of getting your wood stacked and under a roof.
Do you guys spray walnut with bora care? Iíve got a bunch of ash coming up that I want to treat but wondering if I should have done my walnut too? Other species? I have some bur oak, locust, coffee bean, mulberry,and hedge. Can you spray it good enough after itís stickered if you see bug action? Should have thought this out before I moved all these 3í x10í slabs  :)

I donít spray my walnut, bug donít seem to like it much.  I once had termites build a mud tunnel over some walnut to get to some oak.

I don't spray walnut either.  PPB's will get in walnut sapwood though.  I have had that happen more than once.

Ditto Danny and Robertís advice.  If you spray it, donít use Bora-care on green lumber.  Use Timber instead (cheaper).  Bora-care is best for dry lumber.

If you do spray it, typically you only need to spray the bark and sapwood.

Use hot water to help it dissolve.

It will be important to cut and then fit together almost right away, as it is not uncommon to have the logs warp and twist as they dry and then the t&g will not align.

Thanks! Itís just limestone screenings from the local quarry. Iím kinda wishing Iíd had just poured concrete and then I wouldnít of had to level all by bases, or at least been really close. I started putting cinder blocks down and then shimming a 2x6 on top of that for my pallets.
