My sisters son has 45 acres and a lot of hard wood, oak, maple and some cyres. Looking trying my at hand drying some. Going to build a small solar kiln but do not want cut any large trees. If goes wrong do not want to waste a lot of wood. If I cut some maple is the better wood at the base of tree? Maybe I have been doing to much reading :glare: So if some one could show me the way would be helpful. I maybe I can start this project soon. Going in the morning to start taking a old barn down in Ga.
