My husband and I are getting ready to get about 2900 bf sawed. I have been looking to buy dry stickers, but am not having luck. And I'm not keen on paying 30 cents each when we have plenty of lumber.
So I was thinking of having our sawyer cut 2 times the stickers we need, using green, and then restacking a week later on the hopefully dry stickers we have not used. How does that sound?
We are in southern Indiana. The stickers will probably be poplar. Most of the lumber is poplar with the end use of barn siding. We hope to sell additional lumber we don't need, most of which is poplar, with a bit of black oak and cherry.

From contributor A:
While green stickers are better than no stickers and the end use is barn siding, I would not worry about it. If there is going to be some clear wood that you have other plans for, then I would look for some dry stickers. Maybe your sawyer will have some dry pine he can sell you to make stickers out of.
