For a long time I was puzzled why woods from elm, mulberry, hackberry were not used as much even though in plentiful supply. And with my recent experience of using timber beams of hardwoods I think I may have answered that question. For I find that drying these timbers some of the crack horribly. Perhaps it is my method of drying them, perhaps exposed too much to the sun.
Is there a science study of how wood beams dry and avoid cracking. Some of the mulberry and elm have fissures in the beams so big that I can stick my hand into the fissure crack.
So is this cracking due to my novice drying or is it because some wood cracks badly in drying and that is why they are seldom used in the commercial industry. Or does industry glue up the cracks of timbers and I just never noticed.
So anyone have information as to wood drying and avoiding huge cracks.
