I have a friend who would really like me to build her a simple ladder. The link is here:
I purchased lumber today and it feels fairly cool to the touch. We live in the Southern California desert area with average humidity of 15-20%.
I really want to start the project but I wanted to know if I should wait for the lumber to dry a while before I start to cut or can I start cutting it now and then let the cut pieces dry for a day or so and then build and stain.
I don't want it to shrink and split after she gets it home, but I'm eager to start working on it.
Thanks so much!!
