when lumber comes out of the kiln it should be at about 7 percent. from there it will stay near the same if you live in a place like arizona or texas and it will go back up if you live in a humid place. you should always give your wood time to acclimate for a few months after it comes out of the kiln imo

how can i stalk different sizes of teak wood in 1 kiln?Now it takes nearly 12-13 days to complete the kilning.but i think its not in a proper way.On surfaces ,shows 16% MC,but always its very difficult to make a proper M.C less than 18% in the material

When you buy wood in the stores, such as OSH, home depot, or sears, is the wood already cured?

Thank you for sharing this. As a buyer, how does one know a plank or piece of wood is fully cured? What signs do we look out for?
