Today the kiln was filled with #walnut#cherry and #hardmaple . The pictures show how I load the kiln. Luckily my repurposed cube van box came with it's aluminum loading ramp. It sets up in a few minutes. I have 2.5" pipes that I set on the ramp,then the wood pile on the pipes. I just push the pile in by my own power, move the ramp and repeat. The last lot to go in fits across so it's 6' stock.
