Artificial drying: The wood is sealed in a steam drying room, and the steam is used to promote the evaporation of water and dry the wood. (According to the size and thickness of the wood, such as 4cm board drying time generally takes one week), the highest degree of drying can make the wood moisture content only 3%. However, the brittle wood that loses its toughness after high temperature evaporation is easily damaged and is not conducive to carving. Generally speaking, the degree of dryness of logs should be maintained at about 30% moisture content.
Natural drying: The wood is sorted and placed in a ventilated place (board, square or round wood), and it is placed in a stack, the bottom of the stack is about 60cm from the ground, and there is a gap in the middle to allow air to circulate and take away moisture, and the wood is gradually drying. Natural drying usually takes years or months to reach certain drying requirements
.Simple artificial drying: First, use the fire to dry the internal moisture of the wood. The second is to boil the resin component of the wood with water, and then dry or dry it in the air. The drying time of these two methods may be shortened, but the wood after water intrusion easily changes color and damages the wood.
