Yeah it might have been me. I took some nice lodge pole pine 8 footers and dry stacked them inside under cover and sawyer beetles got into them and turned them into Swiss cheese. Tunnels the size of a small pencil. Also sap rotted around the outsides. I thought leaving the bark on would help keep them from cracking. Most experience is learned the hard way it seems.
Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
