"Mini Kiln" Dries Lumber In Small Batches
If you cut your own lumber, you might want to look at this new “mini kiln” as a way to enhance the value of your sawn wood.
  The Nyle kiln is designed to be placed inside an insulated building. It dries wood by drawing moist air across a cold coil, where it then condenses. It operates on 120 volts and comes with a separate controller and a remote control that’s easy to use. You use the controller to set the temperature and moisture level.
  Two fans provide circulation to assure even drying. The unit will handle 300 board feet of fast-drying soft woods and up to 1,000 board feet for slow drying hardwoods like oak.
  “Cabinet makers don’t want to wait for wood to dry because it can change color. Kiln-dried lumber stays looking natural without any grayish tints or cracks,” says a spokesman for the company.
  Sells for $2,995 plus S&H. The company also makes full-size kilns.
