Then we'll plane it and mill it into T&G or Shiplap (still deciding there).
Looking good with your sawing. Quote from: OlJarhead on March 07, 2011, 12:59:14 am Then we'll plane it and mill it into T&G or Shiplap (still deciding there). T&G, V groove is another option. While emphasizing the cracks the V seems to minimize the appearance of any expanded cracks. (Image hidden from quote, click to view.)This is a V groove ceiling.
Nice work. Everybody likes pics.Looks like you have good help also.
I assume it's just a v-groove milled into the board just like a standard T&G with a router?
It's not just condensation you have to worry about under a regular tarp. The humidity will stay way up and the wood will not dry quickly enough -- with pine you'll get mold and stain forming. Proper lumber tarp will let vapour pass through while preventing water from getting in. Around here the big mills usually give away used lumber tarps.Lessons learned the hard way:1) Make sure your stickers are at least 3/4" thick. I tried thinner stickers one season to keep the height of the piles down. Even with open sides, I had mold growing on the boards in the center of the pile.2) Don't leave the sides of the pile open too long. I did that once and ended up with a very thin layer of very fine dust on all my boards. You didn't notice it until you put the wood through a planer .The variation in air-drying times is a function of the season. I found that my 1" Douglas-Fir air dries down to 10% MC in one week in July/August. It takes several months in the winter.
Looking good Marine! I raised my mill up off the ground to minimize the bending over.
Not sure what you mean about the dust with the sides open unless you mean dust (dirt) from being blown in?
I went to a lumber yard & bought a pile of 48" stakes (cheap) and split them on the table saw. They were already dry - used them as stickers. Not that a former CAV guy needs to tell a Marine what to do. (ha ha)
