Proper Air & Shed Drying of Lumber Prior to the Kiln Drying Process
Some lumber is sold green, but more money can be made if the lumber is dried using air drying, followed by kiln drying. In this webinar, Dr. Wengert discusses stacking, followed by the best air-drying practices, assessing lumber for sawing issues that affect drying, the story about drying sheds, and practical techniques for achieving low, uniform MCs in proper air-drying to reduce drying time in the kiln.
The webinar series is offered FREE to the hardwood community THANKS to the support of U*C Coatings.
