Air dried storage
« on: September 21, 2017, 10:07:15 am »
I have about 1000 bd ft of 4/4 cherry that I am moving. It has air dried for 3+ years. Do I need to resticker it or will it be ok flat stacked?

Flat stack, but if you have the means to band the stack, do so. Even a couple cheap ratchet straps would work from harbor freight.

I would worry about ants if it were outside, any water getting between the boards and it's ant candy.
