Not sure if this is the correct forum. Back in the 90's most of my wood cutting centered around making lumber. I always had stacks of lumber drying down. About 5 yrs ago I decided my stickers that were about 15yrs old where taking up too much room and decided to cut them down to 12" in length and store in boxes for kindling. They are stored on shelves (top shelf to be exact) in the wood building. So the picture here is 15yr old stickers, 1/2"x1"x12" in boxes on top shelf. Slowly I've been bringing in some when I need them for fire starters. Yesterday I brought in a box and today I used a few to help get a fire going. Soon afterwards I heard a hissing noise. I looked to see what I expected would be a wet piece of firewood and to my surprise was a piece of Oak sticker oozing from the end. 15yr old small thin pieces of Oak stored in a dry building that easy gets over 100 in the summer and that damn stuff was still wet.
