Wood Moisture Sensor

Wouldn’t be fairly easy but also super useful to modify the grove capacitive soil moisture sensor to be used for hard materials like wood? The sensor would need to measure the electrical current flow either using metal pins or surface contact sensor? Isn’t a similar process?

Plenty of people in woodworking, lumber, construction, even concrete work would appreciate having this piece of hardware for their projects.

(As a new user, I can’t post a link to the actual sensor) It will come later.

Example of Wood moisture sensors

This is a nice and interesting idea, a wood moisture sensor will definitely expand the application scenarios for moisture sensor. we will try to find a solution. Thank you Thierrygiles.

Also, will be useful for forest fire prevention.

I would appreciate it too, and a “ball” headed version would be also useful for measuring silicate based substrates:
