|Thread: Red wood slab|
I have some questions. I have bought an eight foot redwood slab from a sawmill it is about 5 inches thick, I would like to make a base and turn it into an outside table. However
I don’t think it’s fully dry!
If I make a base that allows the slab to sit on top, then I won’t have to screw it which would affect the hold of the screws when the wood contracts
if I sand the slab and use a protective oil- then which one? Will the slab continue to dry with oil on it?
i plan to cover the table during rain
ideally I would store the slab, buy a wood moisture gauge and check until I’m happy that it’s at the right moisture level, then build, but it could take a while!
I live near Manchester, I would like to kiln dry the slab if anyone knows of a place that would do this?
i hope someone can advise, thanks
