Question:


hello I am doing a log display with a bunch of 6" long piecs approx 6 to 10 inch in dia the customer wants to leave the bark on them and hang them on the wall with the end grain out and i am trying to keep them from craking two much they are logepole pine and are going to be cut green is it possiable to leave the bark on? and will sealing the ends right away help it from cracking? thanks for your help

Answer:

You should cut the logs in the winter when the sap is out of the tree if you want the bark to hold. As for the cracking, it will be hard to stop. I don't think sealing the ends will do much.
