Pallet wrapped wood seasoning

Recommended Posts

I've posted links before but for anyone interested it's easy enough to find.  Go to Hearth.com and the be woodshed sub forum and search for ' solar kiln'.  It's been discussed at length and 2 or if 3 guys have developed systems, posted extensively about it.  There's a guy in Alaska or somewhere Northern and cold, drying his wood to something like 6-8% MC, in 2-3 months and being a scientific minded guy he has a lot of temp and humidity and MC data.

He showed good design harnessing solar gain and the right amount of ventilation really worked.  His calculations show the right amount of ventilation is surprisingly small too.
