Drying Wood in the Coastal Air
Our wood shop is located in Gold Beach, Oregon. The traditional method of drying wood is to let it sit on stickers for several years to achieve around a 20% maximum dryness with our moist air environment on the coast. To achieve a dryer wood in less time, we have acquired a new technology kiln drying machine for our unique woods from a company called iDry. This new machine can dry wet wood 5-10 times faster using a continuous vacuum system with a combination of heat and vacuum getting the moisture levels down to around 8%. Wood leaves this new kiln dry, lightweight, sterilized and ready for finishing.
Project Ready Wood Slabs
After our wood slabs are Kiln Dried in the iDry system they are ran through our new Wood Wizz timber resurfacing and finishing machine. This machine produces a truly flat, high quality finish that is achieved on all types of timber slabs, burls and recycled wood.
The project ready wood slabs are sealed in plastic to maintain and protect the dry moisture level for shipping and delivery.
