Wet Wood
« on: January 24, 2004, 05:43:18 PM »
As Y'all know, we haul it from the river today and saw it tomorrow, well mostly ::)

 About how long or what MC would it be best to put it in a Solar Kiln???

 Some will be really sappy SYP and some will be Solid Cypress.

 I know there isn't much of this stuff up north, but, maybe there are some schedules with your kiln designs.

 This is going to be SO cool 8) 8) 8).  Thanks Boss ;) ;) ;D
All truth passes through three stages:
   First, it is ridiculed;
   Second, it is violently opposed; and
   Third, it is accepted as self-evident.

Fla_Deadheader not sure if there is a manual but with what
i have talked to Larry you would load the best wood on the
bottom and the sappy ones on top. Them close the vents
all most closed and just take readings as you go. Larry
puts a pin in some of the wood and hooks wirs to it and
then hooks his meter to read the mositure. Boy this is
cool and i think we will all learn to dry wood.
