I was discussing pine cage construction with someone and asked whether he
used kiln-dried wood, or just picked up whatever pine was at the store. His
reply was, "The pine I used was kiln dried from a hardware store - if its
not kiln dried it could contain phenol oils which could cause problems."
(He is in England). This might answer the question someone was trying to
find out about turpentines being driven off by a kiln. I don't know if the
"phenol oils" are the answer, but could be.
I wonder if smaller hardware stores or real lumber yards might have
kiln-dried as compared to HD or Lowes.
