About the Course
This two-day program will be held in Blacksburg, VA (The Courtyard by Marriott).
This intensive workshop introduces all
the principles of drying hardwood and softwood lumber in a solar kiln.
The course also contains information on the design and operation of
solar kilns. Emphasis will be placed on the solar kiln design at
Virginia Tech (www.woodscience.vt.edu/about/extension/vtsolar_kiln/). Our solar kiln is onsite and will be used in the course.
Whether you are considering building a solar kiln or are currently
operating one, this short course will provide you information that will
improve your lumber drying skills.
There will be a tour of the solar kiln, located at the Brooks Center.
