I'm new to the world of cedar strip boat making, and I'm looking to make a solo cedar strip canoe. My question is regarding dealing with the wood. I have a good source of northern white cedar, it's free, and will just need to get it milled and then cut it to size. I will therefore need to allow it to dry. I don't know anything about drying wood and to what moisture content it will need to be. Any advice or resources in this area would be greatly appreciated.
I look forward to hearing all your help, Thank you.
