Lumber drying tidbits

Bill Tindall, E.Tn.
Over on the main board I posted some information with illustrations on drying lumber. For those experiencing cracks in KD beech, or any other lumber, note how stress cracks from too rapid drying close when the lumber becomes dry at the end of the KD process. But they are still there and can reveal themselves as the lumber is worked.
