They look great. I wanted to try some and had a logger bring me some block but they where to old and cracked so slicked them up and will make some boxes. Any precautions or procedure to go through so they won’t crack.

The block started out clean, but a crack developed as I worked into it. Have a couple more blocks to play with. Not sure you can get the colors yet not be so dry to end up with splits. These both came from the same block. Wife wants a yarn bowl, so will be trying a slightly larger block next.
