I have harvested and milled hardwood that I'd like to have kiln dried for use in flooring and furniture. This includes oak, hickory and cherry. Can anyone help me find a mill or private enterprise that will accept this wood for drying in their kiln. Seems like this is pretty uncommon and I'm having a tough time locating a firm that will provide this service in NY. Thanks in advance for any leads the forum may provide.
Thanks for posting a question to the MyWoodlot forum. Hopefully these resources will be useful:
I searched "kiln services new york state" in Google and found this link to Wood Web under the sawing and drying directory:
. Scroll down to find NY locations.
Another link is for Lakeshore Hardwoods in Pulaski and Victor:
Hopefully one of these sources provides what you need.
Thanks for the legwork on my question. I will check out the link to Wood Web and check in with Lakeshore. I appreciate the assistance. I'll let the Forum know if any of locations will accept small quantities for private use. Thanks Again! Karl
Years ago we produced a Pure Catskills Guide to Wood Products at the Watershed Agricultural Council. In it we listed businesses that offered dry-kiln services. I have attached the relevant page from it and highlighted the businesses. I'm sorry the image isn't better quality - hopefully you can read the phone numbers. Now this guide is probably 12+ years old so chances are many of these businesses are no longer in business, but they could be worth a try?
