I was able to get my hands on 500 BF of 4/4 and 5/4 Cherry and it was stickered/Air dried in a barn for five years. Most of the boards are 12’-13’ long so I have cut them in half in order to handle them. It will all be used to make cutting boards and other craft items so cutting the boards wasn’t a concern to me and it makes them easier to handle. How important is it to keep them stickered now that they are dry? Can I just pile up the boards without stickering them or will that cause issues? My storage area is limited so adding stickers obviously increases the space needed. Thanks for your opinions.

Once the lumber is air dried it may be stacked without stickers.

Mr. Herb is spot on, as usual. You can flat stack it with no worries.

If you do any cutting or milling, you’ll want to re-sticker them just to be safe.

Who you calling “Mr.”, Danny?

I’d have you know I was an enlisted man and worked for a living, unlike most officers…
