Drying 3 to 6" logs looking for a Kiln in Wa state, TY ;-)

Hello all,
I am new on your list as of today, glad I found you
I am hoping to find someone who can guide me to a Kiln, I have Madrona, Pine, and Cedar logs that I am wanting to work with, and need to dry it. Is there anyone on here from Washington? that knows of a kiln to help me out? Thank you much, looking forward to meeting you. Cheers

Welcome Sue.
I'm sure someone in your area will get you lined up with a kiln. You could also look at air drying the logs, but that would take some time, and if you are wanting to use them soon a kiln would be faster.

You don't really want to try and dry whole logs in a kiln. You should first locate a mill where you can have them sawn and then dry them.

Here is a link that points you to various other links where you might locate a sawmill in your area.
