Agreed. Sticker until dry. Dry enough for furniture making.

I thought I was the one that liked to argue! I should start a poll about flour vs corn tortillas. 

Make sure one of the options has to do with how dry the tortillas have to be before it's eaten.

You should let me come get it, so you don't have to worry anymore. LOL

You wern't going to reply, yet you had to get in a last word or two.......  Under any damn circumstances it's better to sticker the wood than not.  Period!!!!!

Actually, this is not quite correct.  Here is the direct quote from that page. "In air drying, lumber is usually left on stickers in the yard until it reaches a moisture content between 20% and 2

Lumber stored in a barn can be dry and ready to use, or so damp it has mold growing on it. It depends whether it was stored in the loft near the roof which is the same environment as a solar kiln, or in an inner, lower room with a dirt floor which could be so damp that condensation could be dripping off everything

I wouldn't use it, and would sticker it, until you know the actual mc. The mc will tell you whether it actually needs stickered or not.

I want to go on record. I called out stain as a primary reason to sticker long before the forestry doc was abused here. Thanks Kev for pulling that out. Common sense wins. Moisture comment doesn't matter if a board can grow mold.

I'm new here. Are you refering to Gene W? He made a comment on this a few days ago in another forum.

l learned a lot from him when I started drying and selling lumber years ago.

Go back a page and you'll see the document linked.
