Hewey - Quick Q about the wax. I understand the purpose is to seal in the moisture but when do you take it off and how long do you dry the log prior to carving? I have to large pines drying out in my garage and all I did was spray ALOT of spray varnish on each end. If moisture is trapped in there, won't it have to escape eventually and split the wood? I'm new to TC so I appreciate the insight. Good luck with the board.
