Hey guys I am about to build a workbench and I have a few questions regarding milling, and drying, of the lumber. I am sure I have this wrong but from my understanding I should get the wood in to my garage and let it acclimate for about a week. From there I should rough mill all the lumber then let it sit and acclimate for another week. From there I can mill it to final dimensions. All the wood I should be getting should be Kiln dried, and I am located in Southern California if that matters.
Is this procedure correct? What is considered rough dimensioning? a 1/8th over? Can/Should I rough cut to length as soon as I get it in to the shop?
I just bought my first planer and jointer, and I want to make sure I have the process correct.
