I cut an Acacia tree stump down and got a slab out of the middle – dimensions are 50 x 14 x 3 inches. The wood is green. I stabilized some cracks with butterfly keys and got it pretty level. I plan to make a live edge hall table. The slab is the entire top and will not be joined with any other wood.
My question is on drying time in this case. (I know the rule on “1” per year” drying time.) I thought I might let it dry for a year, thinking this would make it stable enough and the outside fairly dry. I know the inside would not be dry but cannot see how that would matter. I would then level it, finish it and attach it to the legs with allowance for future movement. What am I missing here? Does anyone see any problems that might develop in this case?
