building log furniture

A friend has an aspine tree on his mountain property that he wants to use as the posts for a log bed.
The tree is alive and 6-7 inches in diameter.
The one concern I thought of was that the wood would be very wet and if he made it into the bed right after cutting he may have problems as the wood dries.
Any other concerns I should tell him about?
Can someone point me to a link on how to build his log bed?
