I needed to make some molding to go around a 5'x3' window for the Swombo. About 1-1/8 x 1-1/4, pretty heavily shaped. The borg supplied a beautiful SPF 2x6x10' - fine grained enough to give nice crisp edges from the shaper. At $5 total, I got about 42 feet of clear molding --much cheaper than stock, even if I could find a pattern that worked.
Question is -- the board was stamped KD, implying that it was kiln dried. It was dry -- dry enough to work for the moldings -- but not like the KD hardwoods I have used. So my question is what constitutes "kiln dried"? Does that imply some fixed moisture content? Or a certain amout of time in the kiln? Or does it vary with type of product?
