Hi folks, picked up a small piece of Ash that was cut by the road side. its been there for a while! dont know how long but probably at least 5 months.
stuck it in the boot and once home cut it to 40" long, split it and took off the bark. I sealed the ends and the pith line, and its on the shed rafters. I hope to work it down to width this week, and when down to thickness I will move it inside to season.
hopefully it will be fine, despite laying on the ground for that long. it has thin rings. the wood looks ok with a slight discoloration in some parts, so here goes!
