Our custom kiln arrived and we're about to test it and put it to work real soon. Why is this BIG NEWS? Because this custom kiln will help us expand the type of products and services for our lovely clients.
This computerized kiln will help us dry the wood to the desired moisture content faster than air-drying. Air-drying takes much longer. The kiln will reduce the wood moisture down to 8% - 10% in approximately 2 weeks vs 2 years of air-drying it. We can control the time, temperature and adjust them depending on the wood species and the size of the wood we are planning to dry. The kiln not only dries the wood, but it also kills bacteria/fungus/bugs, and stabilizes the wood. We will have the capacity to dry up to 4,500 board feet at a time.
Why dry the wood?
Because a green Oak or Cedar board won't work for every application. When wood is still green, it changes, it might still contain bacteria or bugs. You don't want little creatures to crawl out of your beams, mantles, or cabinets.
Ensuring that the wood is at a moisture level suitable for various applications shows you that we're going the extra mile to offer you top-notch quality pieces that will be equally beautiful, consistent, and durable much faster than it would normally take by air-drying them. After some proper test drives, we are ready to go.
We are looking forward to putting this beauty to work.
Sky is the limit. Bring us your vision and we'll make it happen. Come and see us! Let's see what we can make for you!
