We have two slabs measuring 15' L x 27" W x 2 3/4" thick. We had our redwood cut and milled in our back yard, and the slabs have been sitting for a year, under a tarp drying.
There is some mold on the ends, but we are planning on cutting the boards down to 10' in length for our dining table.
We are moving into a larger house and would like to set it up in the dining room, covered, to finish drying. So we would be moving it from outdoors to indoors, and probably keeping a table cloth with plastic covering (think picnic table cloth) over it to protect from spills.
We are doing this because we don't really have the space at the new place to store the wood outside any longer, and we are very anxious to get the table in place, although we know it will be unfinished until it is totally dry and ready to be worked.
My husband is planning on building a temporary support structure for it which would involve screwing the support structure into the bottom of the not-thoroughly dried planks.
That is our plan, please tell me if this is a mistake and we would be ruining the table and the time and money we already have invested into it!
