Farm and Garden - Task and Technique

Water as Aid to Hard Woods

By Unknown Author - Naples Record

18 February 1891

“I notice one thing,” says an observant manufacturer, “and that is that hard wood logs, especially oak, that have been placed in water immediately after cutting and allowed to thoroughly soak, make brighter lumber, with less tendency to sap stain, than that from logs that are left on the ground for several months.

I find also, that in green logs, if sawed immediately after cutting, and the lumber is thoroughly steamed preparatory to placing it in the dry kiln, the same results will be obtained, greatly enhancing the value of the lumber for fine finishing purposes.”
