Update on drying logs in a shed
A year on from my first post about drying logs for a log burning stove, and I have some more data. I continued with the same method until early September 2016. The experiment ended in September 2016, and the logs ended up in the fire.
Log E from Set B showing recorded mass and date.
|Sample A||Sample B|
|Feb 2016||6284g (68.4%)||7456g (81.03%)|
|Sept 2016||5730g (62.32%)||6104g (66.33%)|
The full table of data and graphs are stored in Google Drive.
- Cut and split your logs and put them in a shed in March or April and they should be ready for October
- Don't expect your logs to dry out much in winter
- If you want to measure the mass of your logs, you do not need to measure many to get a representative sample
