Re: Drying resaw wood in desert
If you don't have the room to properly store this lumber then you're better off not doing it. To attempt it would more than likely yield you the same results that Mark's friend ended up with and that can be a very expensive experiment.
I'm in the same boat as you and don't have the room to keep a large quantity of stock in my shop. I know that I'm paying more by having to purchase my wood by the project but I'd rather do that then ruin a couple hundred dollars worth of lumber. It does help to keep the price down if you have a local source for rough lumber.
FWIW, I have heard of stories where people have stack and stickered lumber and stored it behind couches and under beds.
