I need a little of your help...

At my house in Rosenberg (that I grew up in), there are some big limbs brought down by Ike.

1. front yard - live oak - one large limb about 4-5 in - diameter
2. back yard - pecan (Cherokee) - 1 or 2 limbs - 3-5 in - diameter

I would like to have a set of pens made for my brother, my nephew & me.
- are these pieces large enough?
- do I need to let the wood dry out first?
- how long to age?
- chain saw in to what length pieces?
- seal the ends? with what?

Last question ..... would any of you turn these pens for me - I'm not a wood turner - or have any of the equipment (but would love to learn)

thank you for your help

LF....suggest you cut some sections and put them away in a dry place for now. I'm sure in due time...we can get some pens knocked out for you. jim
ps..thanks for the update on Spoonbill RV.
