Air Drying of Wood ( upto 3 years)
All our wood is sawn, air dried and kiln dried in house. The logs are quarter cut and blanks are sawn along the grain. The wooden blanks are then naturally air dried from 4 months to 2 years till about 20% moisture content is achieved. The air dried wood is then finally dried in the kiln to approximately 8% -10% moisture content.
The wood is now ready for precision machining and will not warp.
