Would it be funny if I said “I am a little green when it comes to drying wood” or ” I think my wood has an ear infection, it equilibrium is off” It sounded funny in my head, oh well.
Like milling logs, drying them is all new to me. I have found there is no shortage of good informatiom on drying wood from Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wood_drying to books like Fine woodworking on wood and how to dry it http://www.amazon.com/Wood-How-Fine-Woodworking-Editors/dp/091880454X
I have alot of info but no practical experience and there is only one way to get that…
I set out to build a solar kiln. You may want to look a way if you are “lumberistic” (ya, just made that word up, meaning suffix, from L. -isticus (often via Fr. -istique ), from Gk. -istikos, which is adj. suffix -ikos added to n. suffix -istes. meaning everything must be made of wood!!!! I built the frame from 1-1/4 sch 10 pipe. Yes I said pipe, what can I say it was free and I can weld. LOL
The floor is 12’-6”long x 6’ wide it should hold about 2500bf
The glass is from an old paito door
The idea seems simple
