I just have a quick question. I’m a little confused with regards to wood movement during initial milling. My workshop is unheated and currently uninsulated – this is where I currently have my wood stored.
I intend to make a number of small wall cabinets with this wood, but I’ve been advised to bring it indoors for a number of weeks/months to season the wood for use in a central heated home.
The thing i’m not sure about is when I need to do this with regards to re-sawing. Do I resaw them at the moment while they are still in the workshop and then bring them indoors to settle before the first milling, or should I only re-saw them after they have aclimatised to the indoor conditions. If it’s the latter, should I bring the wood back in after the re-sawing before milling?
I’m probably not making much sense, but any input into the process would be most grateful. The wood in question is sycamore and some spalted maple.
TIA (Thanks in advanced).
