    Kiln drying help

    Hi,

    I'm trying to come up for with a kiln drying schedule for 2 inch, 2 and 1/8th and 3 inch sugar maple. I think the 2 and 2 and 1/8th can go in together. I tried to find resources online but i do not understand how to use the tables. Very confused. We will be using a dehumidifier kiln.
    Please help

    We have around 2000bf of sugar maple and don't want to ruin it.

    mike contact one of your local kiln or lumber yards for there info,, but from my experience you can put it in the same time, but you want to dry it fast to keep it white.
    If in Doubt, Build it Stout!

    Don't put off today till tomorrow!

    Mike,
    I can't help either. I think you might find a lot more help on the forestry forum.

    Mike, Another website to check out would be; http://www.woodweb.com/ Woodweb is devoted to commercial forestry industry education. I am certain you will find some helpful folks/info there.
    I'm a certifiable tree hugger. (it's a poor mans way of determining DBH before cutting the tree down)
