Being on a tight budget. I enjoy rolling the dice a bit.

Definitely enjoy the ability to cut my own lumber using my homemade electric chainsaw mill as well as my rancher 450 with a granberg mill. I recommend milling thick. 8/4. I have had some success with oversized 4/4 milled a few months later. Some checking but in the end it only cost me some bar oil and time. Mostly oak.

Follow the recommend methods above. If the price is right/cheap, I’d say store it in the basement with a heater. That should decrease the relative humidity and move the air nicely. Just keep the heater from direct contact with the wood or other flammable things just in case. It’s working for me so far.
