How best to prepare/preserve once dug up ?
Just curious, if that one root is 18", how big was the whole stump?
'bout 11 ft dbh
My best guess is just like regular wood. Seal the openings, cuts at ends and branches. Except once dried it should be boiled 1 hour for the smallest dimension.
That idea comes from a company which makes bowls from burls and other erratic grained pieces. They claim no explosions on their lathes after the boil takes out the tensions that naturally occur.
Good suggestions, can fit in a 55 gal bbl to boil maybe. wrap with rockwool or fiberglas insulation, throw in a couple of water heater elemnet.
