12/4 Pine
« on: September 24, 2014, 07:26:44 AM »
I usually dry hardwoods but I have been asked if I could dry 4 12/4 pine boards for a charity project.  Is there anyway to put these in with a hardwood load of any sort to get them dryed down. ???

A little background info.  I use a conventional kiln 40000ft.  Mostly maple, cherry, walnut and Hickory

Since the hardwood is on a slower schedule, and since the pine is thick and needs to dry slower, it would seem to be a fairly good match.

And besides that, how can you hurt pine. The problem I see is setting the pitch.
