    I just check the the moisture level in my lumber. I was pretty impressed with results. The 1x10x10 boards range from 7% to 17%. I check these boards in 2 locations. About 6 inches from the end and in the middle of the board. They have been sawn for about 3 weeks.
    The 2x4x10 were 11% to 15%. When I got them they ranged from 20% to 39%. Seems like they are drying very well.

    The 1x10x10 boards range from 7% to 17%.

    That would be considered “dry” in Europe. They use wetter wood over there compared to North America, yet their end products are just as nice. Moisture level will fluctuate forever with the weather. Outdoor wood more so. Lots of 100+ year old barns still standing around this continent that were pretty wet when put up and have never seen a lick of finish on them.

    Really I did not that this would be consider dry in Europe. Oh know what you mean about barns. My Grandparent’s barn would be close to 100 years old. It is standing and only had few boards replaced. The original barn burnt. That is the barn in my profile picture.

    Maybe by next weekend I will start using some of that lumber for the subfloor for my shed.

    Yeah, 12% in Europe for furniture where as N. America likes to get it down to about 8%.

    We are remodeling an old farmhouse. The homeowner is doing most of the demo. I saw this piece of lath and had to grab a small chunk as I had not seen this type of lath used before.

    I am familiar with the typical 1 1/2″ x 3/8 wood, the old Rock lath , Metal lath and plaster base drywall, but had not seen this one.

    It is basically a 1 x 4 with the groves cut in the face sloped down and then some gaps at the joint, between the boards, for the plaster to key into. The angled slots being sloped downward, basically act like a French cleat for the plaster to lock into.

    We have worked in many old homes but had never seen this before.

    As everything was opened up , it was interesting to see that almost every piece of lumber in the house had the label included below. All of the joists, beams and posts. We removed a 6 x 8 post in the basement with this label that will become a mantle for a fireplace. The owners father remembers this elevator and Lumber yard from years ago. I think they closed in the 60’s or earlier.

    That is an interesting piece of lathe for sure. The stamped label on the lumber is interesting as well.

    Wow that’s interesting , great piece of history and nice to be able to preserve or repurpose some of those materials , especially since they hold a sentimental value , I would love to see the finished fireplace afterwards if possible

    Do you have any idea as to why or what happened to the lumber yard closing.

    The owners wife saw the timber and decided they needed to add a fireplace to use it. I think they are still discussing it but my guess is that it will happen. He tole me I should have just thrown it away, it would have saved him about 5K if his wife had not seen it.

    We had a Solar Eclipse this week. I saw that someone had some really good pictures of it on social media.

    Here is section of a oak board that was off the well platform at my Grandparent’s farm. It was used to hold the well pump. I would have to say that this board was out in the weather with no finish for 25 or 30 years.
    It has been bugging since I got the board what it look like cleaned up. So I decide get my electric hand plane out and have a look at it. I would have to say looks pretty good.

    It sure is. I am glad I rescued it before headed to the burn pile. I don’t have any plans for this piece of wood yet. I will use it for something.

    I believe my work table is Worx.
