Excerpt from Inspection of Hardwoods, &C
One mislaid strip is liable to crook or damage several boards or plank. To prevent checks or stain, lumber should be piled as soon as sawed, always using dry or seasoned strips (which should be of uniform thickness and from two to three inches wide), thus preser ving the natural brightness; seasoned strips will absorb sap and thus prevent stain, mould or burn, as it is usually termed; strips should project at the ends, thus preventing checks; the moisture thus retained keeps the ends from drying too quickly, hence, the importance of uniform lengths. Lumber is much better pre served if seasoned under shed.
