Drying wood for stabilizing
I have been stabilizing my own scales for the past few months so I’m still pretty new to it. Does anyone have a clever solution for drying the wood apart from the 24 hours in the oven?
I have a drying cabinet. A simple wooden cabinet with a fan wired in to move the air. It’s above a radiator to keep things at a around 25c.
Just remember that until it is stabilised, it will suck up any moisture in the air the minute it is exposed to an environment with more moisture than it currently has.
that is a great idea. I might try that.
I've heard of a trick to check for moisture where from the warm environment you put the wood in a zip lock bag or the like. If you see condensation on the inside it likely means you still have moisture.
that is a good point.
