Oh yes, woodworking, done a little bit of that over the
last 65 years. Helped my dad build 2 houses, 2 boats and
a whole bunch of cabinet work. My wife and I have this hobby:

Paul and Nancy's Creations Home

Just about pays for itself. Cracks happen. Some of us see them
as a natural happening. Others may see them as something less
than perfect. I have read about all kinds of ways to dry wet wood.
Wrapping in newspaper for 2 to 3 months works pretty well. I am
trying putting them in the freezer. So far it seems quicker. Some put
smaller pieces in the microwave, or bury them in sawdust. Painting
the end grain may take a long time to dry?
