Could you tell me what is the best way to store boxwood for drying? I have logs 10-15 cm wide and 1-2 meter long. Can it be left in logs, or it would be better to cut into pieces? If I should cut it into pieces what way shall I do it? I am not sure if I should do it as in case of regular lumber, because it is relatively thin lumber and the most should be saved to be used. Shall I make it flat or quatersawn? I have some tools made of this wood with the pith of the log included, yet the tool has not cracked. I wonder if this type of wood is as much as liable to cracking than other wood while it is drying? Also some people told me sealing the endgrain of this wood for drying will make this wood develope mold. Is this true? Please tell me advices if you have experiences!
