My friend that had me build his kitchen cabinets (My best pimp) saw a cen-tech moisture meter at Harbor Freight for about $8.00 and bought it for me, thinking it was “cute”. I stuck his bench in his garage… nothing. I stuck my finger… 24 I stuck the tree in his front yard off the scale. Great item for $8.00 And you’re right, knowing the moisture content is very valuable when it comes to working with wood when you don’t know the moisture content. NOTHING is worse than working with wet wood and have your beautiful project split when it’s sitting in a customer’s house in the living room where it’s warmest, and everyone can see it.

Next time I’m at his house I’ll take pics of the tree house I built in his front yard.
