  • Boys at sawmill were busy.

    And look what I got from it! Of course it is still wet and will take sometime to dry. The color and grain of the poplar is amazing. There’s more cedar to come. The log is white oak. You can see on the oak where the water was dripping from while it was in the back of the truck.

        We are storing it under Bruce’s work bench for now. It’s stacked, stickered and banded. I always make room for wood! 🤪

          Wow, nice haul. Love the colors. We just got done drying some poplar, and the walnut should be coming out next month sometime. But we are always looking on facebook or other places to get wood.

            Where do you get your wood from that it needs to be dried? Rolf, I’ve been clearing stuff all week. First was my storage closet than today was my 16’ work table. Got the top done now have to do the shelves underneath. Yippee

              will8989, We made a drying kiln out of a plan we saw on youtube. We took a 6-Tier Commercial Grade Heavy Duty Steel Wire Shelving Unit that we got at lowes, wrapped it in 1 inch foam insulation board and put two heat bulbs in the bottom, we have holes at the top and bottom to let the moisture out. We can cover the holes at the top to slow the moisture,coming out of the wood, so that it does not crack. We had been doing this for about year and half and it has been working great for us. The box can get up to 120 degrees or more if we close the holes up. After the wood is dried, and if has bugs in it we dry it in our mini hot box that we made out of kitchen sink, that has a heat lamp in it. And we run that at 140 for 6 hours, that kills any bugs that might be in the wood. Photos to follow.

                Thanks, Kim. I'll show that to my husband but since he has 2 surgeries coming up I doubt that will be on his to do list. The place we buy wood from air dries the wood for a year, than finishes with kiln drying.

                  Nice work. I truly admire all the projects that you share and I truly envy the fact that you finish what you start. What is your secret?
