Spruce Wood in AViation
Let me apologize in advance for the title pun. In this episode I discuss my trip to Kitty Hawk and the Wright Bros memorial. Of course I find a way to make it about the lumber chosen to build an airplane. Then there is a lot more kiln drying talk. How does relative humidity relate to wood moisture content. Finally more talk of bugs like the EAB.
The Today Show did a short feature on the Notre Dame spire and its construction. Check it out for huge timbers and cool joinery.
