Kiln recommendations in central New England?
« on: September 22, 2017, 10:14:20 pm »
I'm looking for a kiln somewhat locally. I found a company in Maine called Woodmill of Maine that will do everything I need, however it's a 3 hour drive for me.

Does anyone know of a more local kiln that will take one off customers?  Anything between the Lakes region of NH and central MA would be great! 

I'm planning on milling some wide plank pine and having it dried, planed, and T&G to use for flooring in my home.

Good me too haha. If I can't find anything closer that is my plan, to trailer it up there. I'm Lao going to have a fair amount of smaller lines to take down, and I think I may just mill them into 8x8 and eventually have the same place put them through they're plane/molded to give a t&g pattern on them and use em for a log construction shed/outbuilding.

I spoke with a guy there who seemed very knowledgeable and friendly. I just wish they were a bit closer but it's not that big of a deal.
