Hi all, I’m new to this website but I have some questions and this site seems to be the best place for advice.
My wife and I live in near Pittsburgh, PA (gives you an area of how the climate changes go from season to season) and recently had a walnut tree cut down on our property. The logs we had cut into various lengths and widths ranging from 2 FT long to 9 FT long and 2 IN diameter up to 18 IN diameter. My wife wants to use the logs in their natural state (NOT SAWN FOR PLANKING) to make various wood carvings, furniture, etc. for our home. We are wondering what the best type of dehumidifier for this type of drying process would be? Right now, we made a steel rack that is keeping the logs off the ground and “organized” in our garage. A fan is also in the garage to circulate the air and we are starting to price up dehumidifiers now. I don’t know if the ones sold in Home Depot / Lowe’s would be “okay” for this type of process and we are well aware that the “1 year per inch thickness” for drying formula.
Any advice with this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
