I’ve used about 2000 bd ft of air dried red oak lumber over the past decade with no issues. I would agree with lazy man’s comments on how to do it. However you can shorten that time with the use of a simple fan. Stack it so that air can flow through stack just as suggested above. Have a fan blowing through the stack 24/7. I’ve used boards as early as 4 1/2 months using this method. After 4 months make a pass through planer on both sides and let sit for at least a couple more weeks. Be safe and have fun.
