using wood from dead tree for furniture HELP :)
I would like to know if the wood cut down from a dead tree can be used to make a piece of furniture. We cut the tree down today. My son wants to make a headboard from it. Just the posts will be from this tree. He wants the natural curve and we plan on putting piece of wood plywood size in between them. Now, this is not going to be anything fancy, we just want to see how it goes.
So, can this wood sit until next spring since we are due for snow soon? If so, should we store it how?
I am not sure its completely dried out, but it sure fell easily, and don't we need to wait until the wood is dry?
Mom to a wonderful imaginative son!!!
