How I Air Dry Lumber Outdoors

I needed to set up the foundation for the slabs that will be sawn from the silver maple log that I picked up in my urban logging video and I’ve received many questions on drying outdoors and setting up the stack bases. So I’m answering questions on my outdoor stacks while demonstrating how I set up the foundations for the stacks.

To start things off, I’ll make the panel which will become the sides and top. While that’s sitting in the clamps, I’ll prep the material

  1. I see some videos where freshly cut lumber is being used for construction of a barn or shed or maybe a portion of a home, but there was never any reference to drying the lumber. It seemed to be just implied that the wood was going to be used wet. I suppose it would be OK if you were going to use it for framing where it will be securely nailed to other pieces to keep it from warping. I dunno. Can you advise me on this please.

    I Guess kiln drying for quick turnaround woukd be the right move, if you can’t wait a year for air drying.

    Thanks and as always, a great channel.
