This Class is Sponsored by Nyle Dry Kilns
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 is instructed by "the Wood Doctor" Gene Wengert.  The class will advance the knowledge and skills of kiln operators, managers, supervisors, and trainees. The workshop will focus on advanced kiln drying techniques and training, including identifying defects (and the causes and cures), how to safely speed-up drying, energy savings, and more.
Participants of this workshop must have some experience running drying equipment, as no beginning or basic procedures will be covered.
Students are encouraged to bring real-life problems to class for the instructor to evaluate, discuss, and resolve.
