 I wish I had a stack of oak that looked like that. I have a few customers who would pay nicely for that look. ;D

Come up to my place the end of next week when we finish haying and we will have some for you.

We often will stick our flitches  of 1com and better in the summer time so they keep long enough for us to get a load. It can take a while just getting a few off some tie logs along. We usually don't stick our pallet stringer flitches as we generally work them up each week, but with my hand injury and my help at the mill having to make most of my hay, we have 4 lifts of pallet flitches waiting to be edged that I think may look like some of them green sticked pine.

Kinda yuck to me.

Anyone have any experience with a product called Pallet-Nu from this company?

mjeselskis,
So how's your boards looking now? After I sprayed mine down with straight bleach they cleared right up. I've started spraying mine down with bleach on both sides before stacking and haven't seen anymore mold yet.

So here's a little proof that bleach will keep the mold from forming. This board I cut and sprayed all but the last part of the board with bleach right after cutting it. Left in on my mill to air dry to see if it would mold. Only the part I didn't spray molded.

They are looking good. The worst ones are still stained gray, but the other ones are looking good and air drying the stickers for a couple days looks like it helped too.

That's good! I noticed mine that I sprayed with straight bleach have started to get a little bit of mold, but no where near like before. I've got probably 8 to 10 more 16 foot logs to mill so I'll be stocking up on some bleach. Mainly where the fans aren't blowing on them as good.

Stood some boards up yesterday and flipped them today.  So far looks good.  Will try to get them dry a wekk then maybe stack and sticker.  Time will tell.

Day 3 and no mold.  I cut this log without using the lubemizer and I scraped off the sawdust.  I think that helps to keep surface moisture lower.

Day 5 and we had some rain.  Notices some white mold on some of the boards.  Might not be out of the woods yet.

4x4american.  The guys I bought the mill from ran diesel instead of water and said it worked good.  I wondered if vinegar would work since it inhibits mold.

Maybe.. I reckon it'd get pretty expensive/annoying to keep on hand though ... I ran out of water one day so I filled the lubemizer up with diesel and been running that way ever since.  It's easier to keep off hand cause everything I have runs off diesel and it lasts a long time.  I would use alot of water and it got obnoxious filling it up all the time.. the diesel is nice but not when the wind is in your face and not when you're sawing vegetable crate materials or tomato stakes :D
