    Softwood lumber sold for appearance is always dried, if only because it’s more attractive. Air drying, often called solar drying, and kiln drying are the two methods of seasoning lumber. Hardwood lumber may be dried for many reasons. First, drying increases dimensional stability. Wood shrinks considerably more across the grain than along the grain when it dries. Because wood shrinks during drying, if it is cut to size before properly dried, it will be undersized in its final form. Second, drying can reduce, or even eliminate, decay or stain. Wood dried below 20 percent.

    Conditions for kiln drying lumber are standardized in the USSR. Depending on the desired intensity of the process and the later use of the wood, the following regimes are used: mild (temperature at the start of seasoning is 40°–50°C), normal (60°–80°C), accelerated . This aspect is the most difficult one in kiln seasoning and requires expert handling for good quality seasoning. Many modifications of kilns for seasoning timber are available. it is a costly method, no doubt But the quality of seasoned timber is highly satisfactory. 3. Chemical Seasoning of Timber (Salt Seasoning).

      In publishing, books on firewood and building fires have been huge hits over the past year or two. Last Christmas it was Lars Mytting’s Norwegian Wood that was under every Christmas tree and this year there’s a plethora of new books on the subject, including Daniel Hume’s The Art of Fire and Sally Coulthard’s The Little Book of Building Fires.
