I have dried alot of Cedar 5/4x6 in my kilns. We have ran it as decking and all the way up to the premium grades. I use a very mellow schedule and dont rush it along to fast. I have almost always got great results at the planer, NO WETS, and ver little roller split ;D

Man, we run all of our cedar straight from the mill into the kilns, we do not air dry it at all. Your schedule looks even more mellow than mine do. The cedar I am working with is western red cedar, maybe it is quite a bit differnet than what you are working with. Sorry I couldnt be more help to you.
