Does anyone know of someone in the Nashville, TN area with a kiln for drying wood? I’ve got a hundred or so bd/ft of white oak that has air dried down to about 20% and would like to get it down for a table I’m about to work on. I’ve called a few lumber places and they all don’t allow public to dry in their kilns. Does anyone in this area have a solar kiln? I’ve looked into building my own but don’t have a lot of need after this wood is dried. Thanks.

Kev, here is an idea for you and you may already have the heater and dehumidifier. FWIW

Thanks for the plug Art,
I’ve improved on the idea quite a bit since then. In fact my Shed Kiln is featured in this months Woodworker’s Journal. Check it out for more details.

Thanks for the info Art. I think I’m going to build a dehumidifier kiln since they seem pretty simple.

Willie, Thanks for the info about your kiln. I guess I need to subscript to woodworker’s journal now :) Thanks.
