You may wish to check Dr. Gene Wengert, Professor Emeritus in Wood Processing, Department of Forestry, at the University of Wisconsin (Madison) aka “The Wood Doctor” and his articles on the woodweb.com involving wood drying.

Thanks for sharing this Wuddoc – it’s not a site I had come across previously when researching this topic and it’s been really interesting/helpful to read through. Perhaps the most interesting to me was the doc noting several times that air drying beyond 180 days only leads to a degradation in the wood quality – depending on thickness and weather conditions. I take this more as a level of confirmation around my earlier note about the rate of frying in the first few months than something that would impact how quickly I would ever try and use the wood.

I definitely see more reading in my future on that site though. Thanks again
