I recently cut down a large cherry tree on my property. I wanted to bandsaw some bowl blanks out of some of the sections. Can I just use straight, melted parafan wax to seal the blanks? I have purchased blanks before that fell like they are just dipped in wax but I wasn’t sure if something else should be added.
Also, I save a large section (~10′ long) that has a crotch. I wanted to get this milled. If the crotch is any good, how should I keep them from cracking as I air dry them?
