How much moisture does softwood lumber lose after kiln drying
« on: October 26, 2012, 03:54:30 PM »
How much moisture is softwood lumber expected to lose after it is removed from the kiln? 

Also, what are the different factors that influence this moisture loss?

Appreciate any feedback.
Thanks,
JMS
