Any one out there know much about kiln drying bog oak ?
I just got a log a few weeks ago .I believe it is between 8 and 12 Thousand years old.I will probably have it carbon dated
I had it sawn into boards. Maybe 145 board ft.
I made a small D.H. kiln no heat source ,only the dehumidfier itsellf . I have gotten 4 gallons of water out so far. The wood was over 30%M.C. When I cut it. Now it is at 13%M.C. The temp. of the kiln is slowly rising now it is at 106F.
Do I have to raise the temp? How High? If so how long should I hold it there?Any advise would be appreciated Thanks Pat
