Dry Kiln Schedules for Commercial Woods - Temperate and Tropical
R. Sidney Boone
This report contains suggested dry kiln schedules for over 500 commercial woods, both temperate and tropical. Kiln schedules are completely assembled and written out for easy use. Schedules for several thicknesses and specialty products (e.g. squares, handle stock, gunstock blanks) are given for many species. The majority of the schedules are from the world literature, with emphasis on U.S., Canadian, and British publications. Revised schedules have been suggested for western U.S. and Canadian softwoods and for the U.S. southern pines. Current thinking on high-temperature drying (temperatures exceeding 212 °F) schedules for both softwoods and hardwoods is reflected in suggested high-temperature schedules for selected species.
