      Last year we felled our mulberry tree. I kept the thicker parts for later use because mulberry wood has a nice yellowish color. To see if the wood was dry enough to use I needed a moisture meter. I checked various models and based on the reviews and price, Out of the box I used it on all sorts of wood, just for testing. I have no way to check the accuracy of the readings but I think the scale is quite right. It went from 8% for my workbench to 45% for wood I brought in from outside. All in all I'm satisfied with the performance. The only negative aspect is the two pinholes from the needles but that I knew already before I bought it. So I use a spot that has to be worked on.
