I was thinking the same thing.  Magicman makes a good point though.

Probably slightly off topic, but...

Seems like I had always heard that the primary considerations for stickers was that they were of consistent thickness, and dry.  I know it is probably convenient to mill them from the client's logs but, a year or so down the road, do you get any feedback about mold or sticker stain from stacking wet wood on wet wood?  I have seen sticker stain on boards that were stickered with freshly milled stickers, and have tried to plane it out, seldom with good results.   ???

There are basically 3 scenarios.

1 - Some wood isn't prone to staining. I can sticker our local cypress and cedar on green stickers, and it comes out fine.
2 - Many end uses don't matter. Construction lumber for example. It's a cosmetic issue, that's never going to be seen.
3 - You do end up with sticker stain, which is a problem as it usually goes some depth into the wood, and wont always plane out.

So if you are sawing a species you know is prone to staining, maple maybe?, and you know they want to use it for some sort of wood working, then it needs to be dry stickers. Scenario 1 and 2, you can saw stickers from edgings or low grade logs as you go.

The Poplar and White Oak 1X12's that I sawed yesterday will all be used for barn siding lumber.  Only the cows will know.   ;D

I had a few ? On stacking lumber to air dry not sure if this is the right topic for this question but ?
When I stack 4/4 I put sticker between the layers but put the boards tight together in each layer which I assume is correct but if I were to stack let's say 8/4 or even 16/4 should I leave air gap between each board ?  If I would cut a bunch of 4 by 4 post should it in a sense be stickers in the verticle and horizontal direction and at what thickness should you worry about mold or mildew between boards?  And how do you all feel about using cottonwood for stickers sorry to drag on with questions

I always leave a space between the boards, no matter if I am stacking 3/4" boards or 4 x 12 beams.  In theory I would like to leave the air space directly above or below each other , but that seldom works out, as I usually have a variety of board widths together.  If you stack the edges tight, at least here in the south in the summer, you will get moldy lumber on the edges as a result.  I have never used cottonwood for stickers.  Banjo
