Jayman raised the question earlier about how to make dry wood wet. I have a related question; it may be a dumb question but I’m a dumb guy and don’t know the answer.
It is stressed over and over here that your wood should be at a proper dryness (don’t remember the percent) before you build it into a project. I’ve read that it takes a long time—-a couple of years or so—-to achieve that by sticking and storing.
Is drying from “green” different from drying from “wet”, such as if your storage shed develops a leak and your stash gets soaked. Is getting dry wood wet again just like starting over from square one, or will it dry out much quicker?
