Because of the waiting time,  air-drying your own lumber  may not meet the needs of woodworkers who want to go to their hardwoods supplier and exit with a stack of project-ready boards. On the other hand,  you may find the process both cost-effective and fun. In fact, air-drying is something every practical woodworker should consider when that big oak, walnut, or maple tree keels over in the yard, and the tree guy asks what you’d like done with the wood. Rather than watch the logs being reduced to firewood and mulch, a woodworker can save big by having the wood slabbed and then drying it himself. Understanding the pros, cons, and costs of air-drying can make the effort worthwhile for woodworkers lucky enough to hook up with a local sawyer.

Structurally sound and beautiful in appearance, wood is the ideal raw material. Woodworkers know that moisture content is the single most important factor affecting the quality of their project. To ensure quality, from the mill and dry kiln to the finished project, moisture meters help minimize defects such as shrinkage, cracks, and splits. Years of experience, high-tech tools, controls and premium grade lumber cannot make a difference if moisture content goes unchecked.

    nice tool but...

    According to the instructions the moisture meeter is temperture sensitive. Therefore there is an adjustment factor. I live in the northeast we don't have many 70 degree day in the winter. so either you need to take the phamplet with you when checking the wood or record the reading and check it later.

    Easy to use - Direct reading

    I read many reviews and descriptions of various moisture meters in a targeted price range. The Lignomat ED had the features I thought would provide me with the most useful benefits. I am very pleased with the unit due to simplicity of use and direct digital readout. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is that I have only used the unit for a couple months. I anticipate continued use for years to come.
