After three months in the kiln, these massive spruce slabs are ready for action! This slow drying process allows moisture to escape gradually from the deepest cells of the wood in order to prevent warping and cracking. The humidity of the wood has been reduced to 10 percent, which is premium for woodworking. The slabs will soon be transformed into a 21 foot conference table for the Sealaska Corporation of Seattle.
Sealaska Corporation is a Native owned company that represents Haida, Tlingit, and Tsimshian heritage. Sealaska is the largest private landowner in Southeast Alaska.

Nice work! By simply maintaining the temp at 200 degrees for 3 months, was there no separation of the knots from the surrounding wood?
