I would be shocked if Gus used air dried shaft woods .To be more specific
Shaft wood more so than anything. I have some old shaft wood on newer shafts that are amazing. Same as old Gus shafts-wow.
The dings steam out better than kiln dried wood. Kiln dried wood the dings seem to stay. On very old wood they pop up like they never were there. A gouge where wood is removed not a chance anything can fix that.
Zero chance is my educated guess.I would be shocked if Gus used air dried shaft woods .
Please stop . How much have you turned ?The longer the better. Kiln dried speeds things up.
Idk the answer to “how long” naturally. I can’t remember. I’m curious as well.

Kiln dried woods are more stable . Air dried woods are not as stable .
When trees are cut , the mills let them sit a while then process them .
Stress relieve kiln drying is the best way of drying woods.
Yes, it is .Zero chance is my educated guess.
I know in the mid 80’s McDermott was pitching “kiln dried” like that was a good thing. It’s necessary for high production cues, not the end of the world. But imo isn’t the best of the best.
Being around cue building is not turning and hanging woods yourself .I’m stopping when I feel like stopping

I been around cue building since 86
THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS were made.Well you must think Titlistsvare new wood.
