Hi
I have been fortunate to get some large and small freshly felled Laburnam what i would like to know is I'm about to seal the ends but how would you advise me to sore the wood.
I have a workshop dry and not heated or i have a outside log storage unit (will be dry) what place would be best to let them have more chance of not splitting. Thanks in advance

Goes against trying to slow down drying to reduce splitting but make sure you store Laburnum in the dry, any exposure to general external atmosphere humidity or dampness will see the pale sapwood infested with critters and turn to dust.
