I grow shiitake commercially outdoors on oak logs. By using winter cut fresh 
logs and inoculating them in the spring I am having almost 100% success rate 
against other competitor fungi. 
I beleive that you would be wasing your time using old wood as it is already 
being affected by other organisms and has probrably dried out as well.
