Booklet Describes How To Build And Operate A Farmer-Size Lumber Kiln
Robert B. McKeehan, Williamsburg, Ky.: Robert recently published a 25-page booklet that describes in detail how to build and operate a farmer-size lumber kiln. He says the growth in popularity of new farm-size band saw mills means there are a lot of farmers out there with lumber to dry.
"Although commercial kiln drying can be very complicated, my approach cuts through all the jargon and technicalities and gets down to the nuts and bolts of the drying process. It covers both dehumidification and ventilation techniques. All materials and equipment can be purchased locally. In many cases, scrap materials the woodworker has lying around can be incorporated in the design. All work can be performed by the average do-it-yourselfer and the kiln can be as small or as large as you need. It's an excellent approach for beginners and professionals alike. It also contains proven drying schedules for most popular woods, techniques for avoiding and preventing drying defects, a list of equipment suppliers and related publications."
Sells for $12.50 including S&H.
