Working with these measurements and the available shaper cutters and router bits, you can determine the moulding's profile.

CHIPPENDALE What are the characteristics of Chippendale furniture?

AIR-DRYING LUMBER Lumber is expensive. Beautiful lumber is very expensive. One way to avoid these high prices is to switch from the expensive kiln-dried lumber available at retail outlets to the much less expensive green lumber available at sawmills. Preparing green lumber for use does require labor and time, but the cash savings can be enormous.

I think this is misleading. Yes, the lumber might have had a moisture content of 7 percent on the day it was taken from the kiln. But wood is not an inert medium. After leaving the kiln, its moisture content immediately begins the process of moving toward a point of equilibrium with the relative humidity of the surrounding air. That means that if a craftsman took that 7 percent board to his shop in Death Valley, California, that 7 percent would soon become 4 percent or 3 percent. And if I took that same 7 percent board to my shop in central Ohio during the steamy month of July, that 7 percent moisture content would quickly become 11 percent or 12 percent, which is the same as the moisture content of the material I've prepared for use by air-drying.
