Temperature Tests 2024

Article under construction!

I’ve been fine tuning the testing methods over the last couple of years and am currently getting a few boxes set up for temperature testing in 2024. To hopefully see some different patterns in the charts I’m going with boxes that have significant differences and might start with a chart for January 2024

Test 1: General Box Design Test

  1. 12mm Marine Ply
  2. 25mm Hoop Pine
  3. 50mm Cypress

Test 2: Specific Material Test

  1. 33mm Hoop Pine
  2. 33mm Cypress
  3. 33mm Cedar
