Drying 6x6 & 8x8 eastern red cedar beams
« on: February 22, 2019, 09:45:34 AM »
Hey guys, I am typically drying live edge slabs, but might be drying cedar beams for a customer. Has anyone had good success with this?

Can you air dry?
If so, for how long?

All I have found in the literature is that cedar is typically kiln dried from green.

Iíll soon have a vacuum kiln, so that would be an option as well.
