Wooden Handicrafts Suppliers introduces the drying method of wood
1. Artificial drying: The wood is sealed in a steam drying room, and the steam is used to promote the evaporation of water to dry the wood. (According to the size and thickness of the wood, for example, the drying time of a 4cm board generally takes one week), the maximum drying degree can make the moisture content of the wood only reach 3%. However, after high-temperature evaporation, the wood becomes brittle and loses its toughness, and is easily damaged, which is not conducive to carving. Generally speaking, the drying degree of logs should be kept at about 30% moisture content.
2. Natural drying: The wood is classified and placed in a ventilated place (plank, square, or log), placed in a stack, and the bottom of the stack is about 60cm off the ground, leaving a gap in the middle to allow air circulation, take away moisture, and gradually dry the wood. Natural drying generally takes several years or months to achieve certain drying requirements.
3. Simple artificial drying: First, use fire to dry the moisture inside the wood. The second is to boil the resin component in the wood with water, and then put it in the air to dry or dry it. The drying time of these two methods may be shortened, but the wood after water intrusion is easy changes color and damage the wood.
