Abstract

Small, complete dehumidification dry kilns under 5,000 board-foot capacity are not available for sale. Dehumidification drying equipment is available, but an enclosure must be built to house the equipment and dry the lumber. A dry kiln needs to be operated when it is filled with lumber and forces airflow through the tiers of lumber instead of around the ends or over the top of the stack(s). This construction plan is for an 800 board-foot capacity dry kiln structure that is designed to work with an EBAC LD800TM dehumidification unit. This size is suitable for the small woodworking shop or for portable sawmill owners.
