In this video I show how I stack slabs of wood to dry, these slabs were milled with a Granberg Chainsaw mill. You can see the video here- https://youtu.be/bDPDQvQiuY8 These slabs of wood will take about 2-3 years to dry as much as they can dry outside, I’ll then finish them off in an electric kiln. In the meantime, they will slowly dry outside, stacked on a foundation of cinder blocks and treated 4X4’s. The slabs are spaced with 3/4 X 3/4 inch strips of wood called stickers. Mine were cut out of 2X6 spruce lumber. The stack is finished off by ratchet strapping it together and covering with roofing tin.

  1. Nice slab. Perfect for your milling projects to air dry.
    Have you watched Matt Cremona and his monster bandsaw mill build?

  2. You're pretty trusting leaving nice slabs of wood in the open, even if it's on your property. I hope the area isn't sketchy with curious eyes.
