    We do it all the time at our shop. I think there are several factors that could deter most from doing it. 1) Qualtiy resaw or saw mill availability 2) storage – depending on the thickness of the raw lumber it could take a year or more to get the moisture down to a workable level.

    We’ve rushed some wood through the drying process with less than desirable results.

    So if you don’t have a large bandsaw or someone with a portable sawmill or the ability of a sawmill then it’s really difficult.
