For example, the chapter on drying lumber ends not with any techniques to dry that log from the arborist who just left your yard but a reference to purchasing plans to build your own backyard kiln and the exotic process it uses. Most people start with one tree, and for some reason they decide they want to "make it into lumber" without spending $3000. This book wont help much.
