Oops! Rusty Shop

Rusty Shop

 

Before leaving town for the weekend, I made room in my garage shop to
stack the 500 bd. ft. of freshly cut red oak that I’d just acquired. I
aimed a fan at the stack to help circulate the air, so the boards would
dry evenly while I was away. When I returned, I got a big surprise. I
don’t know how much water 500 bd. ft. of green oak contain, but I can
tell you that enough was released in a single weekend to saturate the
air in my shop and create a layer of rust on every metal surface of
every tool.
