Techniques for Drying Wood Before a Project

drying-woodWhen you’re working with a lot of wood, like an amateur or semi-professional furniture maker, you’ll have to figure out an effective way to store it. If the wood hasn’t been dried properly, or moisture accumulates during storage, you’re going to find working with it pretty rough. Once you figure out how to deal with wet wood, you’ll be ready to dip into storage to get all the parts you need for your next project.

Stacking and Storing

The first thing to understand about wood is that it works a lot like a sponge. If you pour water onto it, it’s going to absorb that water over time. If the wood is wet, it will rot or warp over time and cause major problems for you when it’s time to build.

That’s why you should stack wood boards atop one another with spacers in between. The spacers allow for a light breeze (also important) to cool and dry out the wood as it sets over time.

If you’re going to store the wood indoors, like a shed or a garage, then you will inevitably have wet wood when it comes time to work. How do you avoid this problem? The solution is simple! Heat is needed to dry out the wood, so a little bit of heat and air will eventually dry the wood out. Maybe, before you start working, take the wood from the shed and store it in the shade where the wind can hit it.

There are also reports of pain relief from body aches and soreness from the use of a memory foam mattress. This is due to the selective displacement of pressure along the surface of the body.
