surface fungus on my wood!
Last weekend, I spent a large part of my day chopping firewood for the winter, silver maple. I saved random chunks that were fungus free. I then put these pieces in a bucket I had laying around. I washed it out before I put the wood in because it previously held dog food. I didn't dry it all the way out, but did shake it out. I then filled it and put a lid on it, left it in the garage.
this weekend I'm doing a beef roast and went to use some of my new woood. I found a soft white fungus covering/on about 2/3 of the wood in there. SHINOLA!
Attached is a photo of one piece that had this fungus on it. to save much of my wood...could I take a wire wheel on a grinder and take that fungus off safely?
...learned a good lesson.
