Sometimes you just have to make it fit.

Nice stack, and still have room for stickers at the ends... ;)

These are mainly 2" thick white oak around 16" wide on average. And fairly air dried already. Around 18% moisture. I have no clue what they are worth. This is a customers lumber. He just wants me to kiln dry it and surface it on both faces. They will be countertops in his new house. If they were mine... Probably around $2 a bf. Or around $400 for the stack.

At an estimate of $400 for the whole stack, I'd hope for you that's not the kiln dried price?      The sizes you mentioned and looking at the stack, it appears to be somewhere slightly over 360 bf.    Just my drying price for that would be about $220 alone.

Jake,

Looks like the inside of my kiln. Even looks like my DH unit. Nice use of space. Does the unpainted plywood sides allow you to achieve low RH? I painted my interior with aluminum roofing paint to make an impervious surface but I really don't know how effective that was.

I still have plans on painting the interior with aluminum paint. And putting weather stripping around the doors, and building a kiln cart that rolls in and out. But I have lumber that needs dryer right now, so that stuff is getting pushed back.

"I don't ever plan on drying anything 20' long, so a 19' wide kiln should work fine." - Me, 2014
"I really wish I would have made this kiln a foot longer for these 20' white pine slabs." - Me, last night.

I did 2 cans of the RV aluminum paint inside my chamber, it made a huge difference in maintaining heat and RH more consistent.

I detest painting because I find it so sedentary, so when it came time to paint the inside of the kiln I did it my way. I suited up with a gas mask, poured a few quarts of Al roofing paint on the floor, rolled it up the walls and ceiling working my way to the door. I never smelled it all. Now that's my kind of painting. Funny, I wonder why no one has ever asked me to help them paint their living room?
