I find all this talk of how long wood needs to cure (6 months, 1 year, 2 or more years) very interesting and have read about 15 or so articles about the subject plus my own expeirence. So far none of the articles have contradicted my own findings but for the people who have found it much better for the wood to cured 2 or more years I have a question. Do you know the difference of moisture content between fair and really good wood in your opinion? The 20% is the number used a lot so is 20% good but 15% better, of course you will have to have a moisture meter to have checked this out. I guess if you have noted the type of wood could also be of help in my quest for knowledge as that too could have an effect on the results.
