I agree Mr. Smith, it must have mostly to do a lot with UV light…here is a photo taken minutes ago of some boards I sawed up Saturday. The one in the middle was “on top” of the pile and got hit directly with sunshine for one day! I brought them back inside yesterday morning. The others were outside but were not stickered yet and got no direct sunlight. They also only received artificial LED light the day they were inside. If UV light does it, or just light in general it doesn’t appear affected by LED’s:

I understand about the aroma, even if left unfinished it kind of fades in time, but it can be “refreshed” to almost as good as new with some light sanding. For what I am doing I don’t really need the aroma, just the pretty color. These logs are pretty dry, they were cut down and laid around for 10 years until the other day when I got them. I could just bring them in my old shop in the basement of my house, but the wife cannot stand the smell. I guess it is still good that they don’t have to set stickered for another year in the weather and sun.
Thanks for all the info so far guys!!! It is greatly appreciated.
