Drying wood simply a water removal can sum up this process in one word evaporation. Air circulation more important than heat for air-drying wood in your basement. Adding an inexpensive fan or two & optional timer should help drying your wood. Based upon current MC of boards can set up a schedule of fan on, fan off. Fan speed and placement easy learning process. Just getting air circulation through stack all you want.

I bought this MM from Lowes couple years ago when only cost $10, and recommend it at current price. Reviews at website worth a look.
