Improper drying of lumber can lead to significant losses in yield and value. Drying defects can cost a company thousands of dollars in lost profits and volume.

This workshop, instructed by "the Wood Doctor" Gene Wengert, will advance the knowledge and skills of new kiln operators, managers, supervisors, and trainees.
Students will learn the fundamentals of kiln drying, including the best practices for measuring quality, proper stacking and air drying, and measuring moisture content (MC). They will also be trained on advanced techniques, including identifying defects, how to safely speed-up drying, energy savings, and more.
Students are encouraged to bring real-life problems for the instructor for evaluation, discussion, and resolution.
