Thermally modified wood has both advantages and disadvantages over regular kiln-dried or pressure-treated wood. The advantages include increased weather resistance, rot resistance, insect resistance, and darker coloration that isn't just surface deep. The disadvantages include less flexibility making it prone to splitting when nailing, increased cost, and lower availability. Let's take a look at how the average home woodworker can mitigate the last two disadvantages by making their own thermally-modified wood at home.
