Q: Our kiln-dried lumber is stored in an unheated building until we are ready to use it. We then bring it into the plant and cut and glue right away with a PVA. I think that the cold wood in the wintertime is interfering with our gluing. I ran a test and if the wood warmed for a day, it glued better. Am I correct that cold wood is not a good idea when gluing?
