Going to try drying this load of cypress as best I can. I have a 48” attic fan blowing directly on it. The lumber was fresh cut a week ago. Using a moisture gauge I saw moisture fall 10-20 percent in only two days using this method. The daytime temps are running in mid 90’s. My suspicions are, this is a fairly normal drop but I’ll chart it anyway and see. Would love to hear about other’s experiences drying lumber and how long it usually takes with cypress.
We plan to use the lumber when ready on two sides of a room that will be designed with a rustic feel to it. We’ll work outside and inside. Inside planning to build hickory cabinets.
