Fast drying wood...

Recommended Posts

The answer to that one is one you will not like. :D

Unless you have a kiln lying about, your looking at approximately 1 inch per year, and don't use it if it's not dry and seasoned, unseasoned/wet wood sucks tonewise.

That poplar I bought a few weeks ago was still too fresh, it's already developing splits in it. AFAIC, it's junk. I don't have that long to wait!

i think i heard someone say that with kiln its like 1-3months per 1" instead of a year per 1"

if true, id find somone with a kiln, dont know how you go about that and asking them if you can put it in there and how much they charge though. tell us how it goes.

I dont have any expierence at all at this subject so I might be way off in my answer but...Has anyone thought about chemicals? There are some dehydrating agents that remove water from anything ..even the chemical bonds. Im pretty sure that a dehydrating of that degree is not nedded but has anyone tried salting the wood or placing it in brine solution? Calcium chloride works well in dehydrating moisture as well.
