Honey locust dry with another wood??
« on: January 11, 2019, 10:38:36 PM »
Sorry if I asked this in the past, but can Honey locust be kiln dried with any other wood?  I've been accumulating some table top slabs and 5/4 boards.  Some have been air drying for a year or more and some I just cut today(but I've had the logs in my concrete log yard over a year).

 
Anything someone can design, I can sure figure out how to fix!
If I say it\\\\\\\'s going to take so long, multiply that by at least 3!

Very dense and heavy, but yet, pretty.  I've always liked it.

The wood seems to surface check more easily than oak.  Dry it slowly.

From what I've read Gene, you seem very knowledgeable.  I don't have a kiln, so I was wondering if I could put with another species and have it kiln dried by someone?  I have some that has been air drying for a year plus, and this new stuff I'll let air dry a year first as well (5/4 boards).   I'm looking at using my 2.5" slabs for table tops first though.  They've been air drying for 1 or 2 years.  Was wondering if I could put those in with any other species?

With air dried, you can mix species and thicknesses of almost any species without risk using a reasonable start up procedure, and a depression that never exceeds 35 F.  However, never mix MCs.

There are modified schedules in Drying Hardwood Lumber that show groups of species that can be safely mixed at higher MCs than one-year air-dried.
