Proper Kiln Drying – 360w360 E.136

stacksIn this episode of 360 with 360WoodWorking, the 360 talk about the the process of drying wood in a kiln.

Join the guys twice each week for six lively minutes of discussion on everything from tools to techniques to wood selection (and more). Chuck & Glen, and sometimes a surprise guest, all have their own opinions. Sometimes they agree and sometimes they don’t, but the conversation is always information packed and lots of fun.

  1. Excellent analogy on “low & slow.”
    I can’t even picture in my head what 45 million board feet looks like.
    That would be damn near a whole (big) forest.

    I sure wouldn’t mind having that stack pictured in the post next to my shop…

  2. Great topic! I hope this is just the tip of the iceberg, cause I have so many more questions.

    Like that slab of Bloodwood that I resawed, where the outer sections lay nice and flat, and one of the inner sections developed a nasty twist. It continued to twist after being flattened when humidity changed as I drove across the country. Does that sound like it was due to a shortened kiln cycle?

    I would certainly like to hear your take on air drying. Consider this a requqest for another 360×360.
