Hi Guys,I'm new to this and computers in general as my signature attests, Jeff I'll never backtalk to your computer again if you will fix my signature, mom,s on the way with the soap. Anyway, I build log homes. We used a new supplier on a project in WI last fall. The logs were to my eye E White Pine, Red Pine and White Fir. The red pine well ... sucked. It had major blue stain and coffee stain the stock was air dry to 17-22%. Then you remember the run of wet around August, the spores were happy to see it. We got it knocked down with Borates but some of that wood was about to go hairy. Meanwhile the other woods just sat there unperturbed. Also the red twisted more...alot more than the others. Is this typical, both the high fungal content and the twisting or was that an unusual batch. We avoid SYP because of the twisting I've been told it is due to the orientation of the fibers in the second ply of the cell wall being too diagonal in SYP.I'm just a carpenter so that worked for me. Is that correct, is that the reason for the twisting I saw in the red. What I'm asking is should I fire red and if so why.
