Re: Air drying lumber properly



The Borg and Lowes (there aren't any others worth mentioning), here,
keep all the dimensional lumber inside. I haven't seen anything there
that wasn't KD.

Here in Washington state, the only kiln dried "framing" lumber are 8' and
"precut stud" lengths of 2x4's and 2x6's. Anything longer (10 ft, 12 ft,
etc.) or larger (2x8, 2x10, 2x12) are sold green.

ALL pressure treated lumber is sold green, regardless of size or length. A
wet PT 2x12x12' can be REALLY heavy! :)

However, all 1x "woodworking" boards are sold kiln dried (Pine, Hemlock,
Poplar, Oak, etc.).
