all these guys with previous experience kill me in their expertise in building a craftsman type home, in their previous experience with buying 3000 ft of 4/4 cherry timber will guide you in their expertise of “what to do”

this web site is full of foolsMoron

Moron, you seem overly critical of someone you know little about. He said he wanted to use it for cabinets, trim, etc.. I’m not here to guide him on what’s best for the style he’s building. He wanted to know whether to kiln dry or not. I gave him reasons to and not to.

I don’t see where Paul, Dusty, or I made any statements that we had experience buying 3000 ft of 4/4 cherry before or gave advice on building a craftsman home. I guess you have reading comprehension issues.

To me (as I stated in my advice, Personally though), kiln-drying at this stage if all you plan on doing is putting it right back out in humid conditions is a complete waste of money (unless you’re trying to kill insects or similar). I don’t see where that warranted any sort of attack by you.

Just because they’re different than your opinions doesn’t make them wrong. I cut and dry my own lumber. I think that qualifies me to give some advice on what to do.

Not only that, I don’t understand how you think drying lumber now at what I guess is a universally lower price all around the world (my kiln still charges the same as they did last week and the week before and the week before….) is cheaper when you factor in renting a trailer or a climate-controlled mini-storage. It’s a wash in my opinion. What if he won’t get around to working on the cabinets and everything else for a year?

kid you not………just look at their projects to be sureMoron

As for projects, I heed the advice that others have given that if I don’t want projects to be copied then don’t post them. Does that mean I think my projects are super secret 100% original great? No. I just don’t feel like posting them. Last I checked, posting projects doesn’t make your advice any better.

I checked your projects and there’s some good stuff. Not really my style, but it’s good nonetheless. That being said, does it make you an expert on everything? No, not even close.

Yep, just confirmed… it’s still called Lumberjocks and not Moron’s Way is the Right Way. Hope you had a chuckle and didn’t take it too seriously; I just don’t understand what your last post was all about.
