I have a question about where best to store the lumber I buy.
I've been on and off working to build woodworking skills (as time permits)
over the past year. I buy wood (and tools) as I need it and usually at one
of the the local borgs...plywood, pine, some cedar. I am planning on a few
small projects over the next few months and want to work with different
woods to expand my skills. I want to try oak, mahogany and a bit of anything
else I can find available locally at a good price.
My shop is one half of a 2-car garage in South Florida....very hot and very
humid and temp in the garage rises and falls quite a bit between day to
night. The items I want to make are for indoor use.....side table, cradle,
small boxes, toy chest, cd case, etc. I have more space to store boards in
the garage, but do have some under A/C storage in a room at the back of the
house. I would like to keep 50bf to 100bf in storage for easy access.
Where is the best place for me to store my boards, garage or indoors?
I work and finish projects outdoors (in the garage and out on the driveway),
but finished pieces will go indoors to stay. Also, if I made an outdoor
picnic table for the patio, am I correct to assume that keeping those boards
outdoors is best? Any feedback is appreciated.
