Timber delivery

Just taken delivery of a lot of wood for the run in to the Christmas rush.

Which led me to write a blog about how to store it properly.

I am fortunate enough to be able to store my timber in a water tight and warm workshop. But this means that I must not be complacent.

With solid boards I store them flat and make sure they have sticks spaced at Approx 600mm between them. It also helps if the sticks are made out of the same wood to avoid any colour bleed. As the stack get higher keep the sticks in line with one another.

With boards, keep them flat and on bearers of the floor. If you can sweet talk the driver then ask for the cover board to keep the day light of the top board.

Keep an eye on where the sun shines through the workshop.
