    Got my moisture meter today and went out to see how the wood is doin'. Checked wood at different locations in shed and I am getting 12% to 18% readings. I am happy with that.

    Can't really say I have a fresh split in the stack. I did check in the center of the splits I did do.

    I think he meant re-splitting a split and checking the center of that to check the true inside %.

    With a moisture reader, you should re-split a split, and then check the middle for a more useful reading

    Oops, bucks beat me to it. :)

    I did not split a split. I will tomorrow and re-check the readings. Thanks for the advice.

    Split ash, cherry & mulberry and got between 17%-19%. All wood in my stack is from deadfall and has been seasoning since March/April.
