Wood drying and seasoning is a science that is too often taken for granted. For us, however, it is our vocation and we aim to stay at the forefront of this domain of knowledge.
To answer in a practical way the questions that kiln users ask, we put together these advisory "technical notes". Their success was so great that we decided that the 24 notes published so far should be gathered in a single work crammed with ideas, tips and procedures.
This exclusive literature, born of the interaction between your everyday problems and our know-how, is required reading for:
