Load from the kiln

I took a load of wood to a kiln and went to get it today. he has it down to 6%. I hope this cures my problems with lids trying to warp and curl up now that the bound moisture is out. I'm hoping that sense its been KD that when it changes MC it wont be an issue.

Hooray for the kilning!!! I think you had posted a while back you had sawn some pine beetle infested standing dead pine???? Is this it??? I noticed a blue tint staining....is this from ADing, temporarily stacking without spacers, stacked to AD uncovered or something else??? I see the sticker marks so it seems a after stickering issue. Is it surface or deep as a spalt would be??? Is it all pine???

KDing has little to do with the MC changing warpage in most cases, yours it will due to originally being not dry enough to start with when you built them and extreme movement. Starting with a stable wood will help a lot BUT you should always design for MC changing movement...dont glue wood crossgrained or glue breadboards etc.etc., always figure for a float/wood movement.....with boxes and table tops seal both sides.....ERC seems to stay flat in chests sealed on exterior only BUT it is a different animal all together.

Have a Blessed and Prosperous day in Jesus's Awesome Love, Tim
