Express Kiln Drying

$1 -> $1.50/Bdft

Our vacuum kiln can dry wood at rates of up to 10 times faster than traditional wood kiln while limiting the cracking, cupping, and the discoloration that usually occurs with traditional wood kilns.
  • $1.00/Bdft for lumber less than 2" thick
  • $1.50/Bdft for lumber 2" thick and greater.
  • 250 Bdft Minimum
  • Above rates include up to 2 passes through kiln.
"Bdft" means board foot -- this is a measure of wood volume. One bdft is a board that is 12" wide x 12" long x 1" thick. To caclulate bdft multiply (all in inches) width x length x thickness / 144.

For extremely thick pieces that require more than 2 passes through the kiln to dry, each additional pass required after the 2nd will be charged at the above rate.
