The batch of 2x4's used for the last 4 tests has been very variable in moisture, both piece to piece,
adjacent pieces cut out of the same stick, and particularly from the surface to the core. A more
detailed description of the matching technique used will follow. This is #1 of the third back-to-back test from the same
batch. Obtaining more uniform fuel will be the next task.
