We are building an addition on the house, and had to cut down a very nice Red oak that was in the way. I had a guy with a bandsaw mill pick it up to take it back to his place to saw and sticker it. That was this spring. He delivered it a few weeks ago, and I have moved it into the basement of the new addition.
I plan to dry it for a year.
The question is after it is dry, how do I find the right piece of wood in the pile when I want to build something? This wood is heavy, especially now while it is wet. The large pile on the left is 12-14 feet long, the right pile is 8 foot. I saw a number of nice clear pieces when I was re-stacking it, that are buried now.
Their is approximately 1,400 board feet of lumber here and the bill for pick-up, sawing, stickering, and delivery was $550
