Greetings,

After making some cutting boards as Christmas gifts this year, I have been asked to start taking orders for my friends and other family members.

Luckily, I have a great lumber yard near me as well as some other woodworking stores within a reasonable distance. My question has to do with acclimating the wood before I make other boards.

I live in Ohio (I believe enough said about the different weather we have here), and my garage is not insulated. All of my work is done out there however I do bring my boards in the house to dry when clamped.

Do I need to let the wood sit in my garage before I start using it or can I use it right away? How long do you typically have to let it set?

Thanks - any information would be helpful!

Mike

I would keep the boards inside the heated and cooled space, and then when you make the cutting boards, bring them inside the heated and cooled space. That is where they will be used, and that is the environment that they have to acclimate to.
