    In need of wood kiln services

    I've got two slabs 20' long by 3 1/2" thick that need to be kiln dryed. I have others also but they are different thicknesses. I'm in the Mooresville area but would obviously travel to get my stuff dryed. Thanx for any and all help on this search.
    Thanx, Greg

    Re: In need of wood kiln services

    You might try Shaver Wood Products on US 70 between Barber and Statesville. That is the saw mill operation not " Li'l Shavers " which is just up the road towards Statesville. Good luck!

    Re: In need of wood kiln services

    One of our sawyers is Kyle Edwards in Iron Station, NC, but I haven't seen any activity from him on NCWW in quite awhile. He has kilns but I don't know if he's willing to squeeze you in on a one-off job.

    There's also Scott Smith (scsmith42) up here in New Hill, NC if you don't mind making a trip to the Raleigh area. Hardly worth it for 2-3 boards though.

    Greg,
    A bit of a haul, but did you talk to Scott Smith?
    (not sure he is willing to put "your stuff" in with "his stuff" but worth the ask!)

    Re: In need of wood kiln services

    Here's Scott's link too. It's worth a call to use one of his kilns even at 150 miles on a fee for service basis.

    Re: In need of wood kiln services

    Scott was the first guy I thought of but the distance is something I wanted to avoid.I will call Scott as soon as I eliminate the possibility of something closer. this deal will involve a lot more than a few boards also. It involves at least two seperate businesses with the same need at this point.

    Well, Thanx for the info and Jerry, I will call Shaver's and see what they can do.

    Reggie Medlin has a small solar kiln in Salisbury but it may not be long enough for your boards.

    Your original post and your follow-up are contradictory. You should have just stated the whole shebang in your original post!

    Give Kyle a call and ask. He is only 20-25 minutes from Mooresville....

    Re: In need of wood kiln services

    Not sure I pick up on contradictory. So where are you having a problem?

    BTW,In answer to the red text- If distance, price ,and convenience for all works out then there will be much more slabs that need and will get dryed. If it is not a great situation then only what we need right now will be done .

    Meaning he can't dry your slabs in his kilns, too expensive, too small of a job, etc?

    Or did you mean Kyle in no longer in operation?

    Re: In need of wood kiln services

    Kyle is shutting down his sawmill. Semi-retirement he told me.
