ElgaKoster Posted May 1, 2014 Share Posted May 1, 2014 Because I love having birds in my garden, we planted a lot of indigenous fruit bearing trees and shrubs in our garden. Of course they need pruning from time to time and so far two of them have very fine closed grains and I would like to see if they are any good for miniature furniture making. The pieces are not big, about 3 - 4" in diameter including the bark, and now I am wondering how to season and store the wood. Do I leave them just as they are or cut the bark off and the pieces into smaller lengths. Winter is starting here which is very dry and temperatures except for cold spells vary between 5 degrees Celsius in the morning up to 25 degrees at noon (41 - 77 degrees Fahrenheit), I am planning on storing this in the garage which doesn't even have a ceiling, so temperatures fluctuate quite a bit just in one day. Otherwise if that is too extreme I guess I can find a spot in my kitchen which has underfloor heating and the one room in the house that is fairly stable temperature wise.
