200+ year old oak slab
A large number of old oak trees were cut down in this area, so I took the opportunity to cut of a slice of one in hopes of making a table...or whatever i wish. I think its white oak, but I am not very sure.
Its a big piece, weighs at least 200 lbs. I cut it off the the trunk with a hand saw. Its about 10 inches thick, so I am going to take some more slices off of that.
I figure when it dries, it will crack. Is there anything I can do to try and stop it? Is there anywhere I can take it to have it cut into thinner pieces? Cutting it by hand took some time, but i'd do it again.
