Ash and Walnut drying
« on: June 29, 2017, 10:10:54 PM »
Back in January I sawed up some 1x12 Ash and 1x10 Black Walnut with the plan being to use it for the treads (ash) and risers for our 2nd floor stairs. The lumber is stacked in the haymow in my barn and gets lots of air and heat on these hot days as there is a cupola above to draw air up through the barn. It was properly stickered and stacked.  Wondering if there is a chance it will be ready for use this coming  winter or should I plan to wait another year. I am a total newbie to drying lumber. Thanks for any advise.
