  • cherry lumber

    I just got some cherry lumber, and I jointed and planed the lumber to the thickness i needed, after that I decided to check the moisture it's at 10%. what is everyones opinion about the next step. should I stack and sticker and pray for no warping(because all the lumber is at the right thickness), or do i just use it anyway? and pray that it doesn't succumb to shrinkage. I was going to make a clock that is fairly detailed. thanks

    8-10% your good to go. Just start making dust out of it.
    info for all: --- "I like long walks, especially when they are taken by people who annoy me."

      Oh, I thought it had to be between 6 and 8%
      Good. at least I know I didn't waste all my time and all that lumber!

        Might not be a good idea to use it at 10%. Would you like me to "dry" it some more for you?
