The water in the wood comes out of the wood from the ends.
This is the reason that even though you split firewood it still
doesn't help it dry any quicker. The water comes out of wood on the
ends of the wood just like it goes up the tree when it is living.
Coating the ends controls the rate of drying. Too fast and the wood will
crack. It does not matter with firewood.
So if you coat the ends it drys slower?
