One-of-a-Kind Studio Furniture & Millwork


Air drying takes a long time but the results are better than drying in a kiln. The boards are left outside (protected but well ventilated) for at least two years. After that we bring them into the shop, sticker-stack them, and let them finish drying slowly over the winter months. The dry, in-floor heat of the shop brings the moisture content down to a perfect 6 or 7 percent without any undue stress on the wood.
