    You don't really have to let the wood dry out or season. I have never seen a difference in burn characteristics. They dry out in the retort before turning into charcoal, so I don't think it really matters. The end result is the same weather the wood...

    Will you be doing your reaming by hand or on a drill press? I was thinking I could do it but it seems as if this type of a job would be something that can't really be done unless special machinery was used to center the reamer etc. I was actually...
