Cedar for oars

In the exciting news department, the cedar had a weight check in yesterday; all are losing weight, at least a pound each, for the one week of drying.  One board is now below the standard for kiln dried.  So, looking good.  Word from Australia is that it will take 7-20 days for delivery of the blades. Owner AWOL during a month off in Hobart.

That's great Dan,
So one of the boards is below kiln dried after a week, that's very interesting, what dimension? What % of weight has it lost?
Thanks.

Jove,

Here's the medical chart.  One of the 2X6's is now under 15 pounds, the kiln dried "standard".  Weight is by bathroom scale, which rounds to the nearest half a pound.  Looking for 10 pounds on the 2x4's.

Is the lumber you got rough sawn, close to a real 2" thick, or "planed" 1 1/2" thick, like a "standard" 2-by?
