Forced-Air Lumber Drying

video Forced-Air Lumber Drying
We had a great opportunity to slab up some Boxelder burl and because winter and freezing temps are coming and the wood is so wet I wanted to bring the MC down faster to help minimize drying loss.  Building a wind tunnel like this is an effective method to do that.  While you don't have to dry on this scale, the process is the same from a small box fan on up to the monster we are using.
