I seem to be moving boards too often. I stack them after I saw them then move them and restack them in the kiln and then move them and restack them in the barn. I was thinking about building a new kiln on a cement pad and then building a cart or two. My idea is stack the wood off the saw on the cart then pull the cart into the kiln and when dry pull the cart to the barn and unstack. Does this sound like an idea that would work? Can a solar kiln be built on a cement slab, and how will that affect the drying process? Has anyone done this?

From contributor M:
Good point - I stack/sticker right off the saw, and I air dry everything. Every handling step eliminated saves time and your back. Early on I would get a big pile of sawn boards, then move them to sticker. Unless it's a custom job going right out, it all gets stickered. 4' wide x 4-5' high is what I can move with the tractor forks.
