    She is still relatively new. I have maybe 4 hours on it since I got it after Sandy hit. One of the piles that were dropped off by a tree service was finally dealt with today. Almost all of it was bucked. There is one 7 foot long Black Walnut that is 19" on the small end. I decided to leave that one for now in hopes of milling it. For those who mill, should I hit the ends with water based paint or oil based? I don't want to get the real deal sealant for now.

    You dont need to do anything with it for the time being.Unless its in a spot that gets lots of sun & wind,and/or you're gonna let it sit for a year,it wont dry out too fast & crack.Normally you'll lose several inches on the ends anyway,so wait until its milled into individual planks before sealing with anything.

    and sealing with parafin works much better than paint
