thick walnut slab
In 2006 I cut a few walnut logs into 8" thick slabs. Really just to test how long it would take them to air dry - before going into the kiln. As well as what kind of shape they were in (cracks, etc). Well, after four years, I sent left them in the kiln for a month and just received them back yesterday. Although they are fairly dry, they are not down to the 7% moisture content that we need for our normal furniture manufacturing processes. But, it should be fine for a few things like a small sculpture, legs or areas that don't require much joinery, etc.
