How can I control wood from absorbing moisture? Can I enclose a small
portion of my lumber stock approximately for 500 board feet and somehow
fit it with a dehumidifier? or something else?
ANy body got suggestions for this problem?
Thanks in advance
What, specifically, is the problem?
If you have a damp shop and store your material in a drier location,
then when you bring it from that location to the shop it's going

environment in the shop, basically.
Sure you can. Stored wood that way up at the university. That way you knew
where it stood and which way it was going, because you looked at the RH on
the wall. If it was going to expand, you built loose. If it was going to
No need for it to cycle up and down all the time, because then you'd have to
check every board and hope the interior and exterior were equalized. Keep a
good hygrometer on the wall in there to calibrate your analog humidity
