wood is available in the market as Timber logs whereas some vendors are
also selling custom frames that could directly be used in door and
window frames. If you buy a log then you would need to cut the log into
the required frame sizes and then let the door season. Seasoning is a
process where you let the moisture in the wood dry to an optimal level.
In normal dry warm weather, it is suggested that seasoning for about one
month is recommended. After seasoning the timber logs, the logs are
then used in the construction work as required. |
