I had been eyeballing a Western Red Cedar Tree in my neighbor’s back yard, just behind us. The tree was dead, and I was wondering when or if he was going to take it down.
As luck would have it, I was cleaning out and repainting my solar kilm, and also replacing the plastic, I bought the good stuff this time. The sound of a chain saw caught my ear. The tree was coming down.
I headed over and asked if they could leave me a 8’ section from the flare up. As soon as they were done, I headed over with my Alaskan Chainsaw mill and had at it.
I have ended up with six 1×15”x 9.5’, and not quite sure what to do with them. The wood is pretty dry, but a trip through the kilm would not hurt. The problem is that ID of the kiln is only 7’4”. Cut them in 1/2?
or a 4’ and 5.5’?, or just air dry them.
