We offer Kiln drying of wood!
The process for drying wood is simple:
- Often the first step is to allow the lumber to cure for three months, to reduce most of the moisture.
Then the wood is kiln dried to reduce the moisture further. The wood is normally dried to 8 to 12 percent moisture for flooring and furniture purposes.
- For soft woods like cedar, pine or cypress the process can take a little over a week.
- For the hard woods like oak, cherry, dogwood, or hickory the process can take a little over two weeks.
- Once the wood is kiln dried, the wood can then be planed or molded, or used as is for the desired application.
