    Question Air dried lumber now what?

    I have some air dried hemlock that is reading below my cheap moisture meter (8%) and ready to plane it and sell as rough, planed, or bee equipment. Should I pull the stickers, plane it first, or sticker it after I plane it? I could get the pile into half the size of a more stable pile and have less checking but the moisture would be set. End of a long dry summer here and we are going into our usual moderate wet winter (rain started today).

    Default Re: Air dried lumber now what?

    Outside - Leave it sticked and unplaned till you need it.

    Unheated shed or building - Leave it stickered

    Climate controlled building - do what ever you like, just make sure it's off the ground.

    I would move it in.
