We've had quite a few humid days of late here in Nebraska, with
temperatures in the 90's & 100's. (High of 77 tomorrow! Woohoo!) I
store my wood in the garage, which is attached to the house but for
all practical purposes maintains an outside humidity level rather than
an inside one, and so I'm curious about wood projects that will be for
indoors...should I store the wood that I will use in the house for a
while (how long?) to acclimate it to the interior humidity, only
taking it out to the garage to work it into whatever it's destined to
If the above isn't overly clear, what I'm asking is if I should store
wood -- that will be used for interior projects -- in the house, where
the air is drier, instead of out in the garage where it is humid in
the summer (and winter). I don't want the wood swollen by humidity,
then made into a nice piece of furniture or something and brought into
the house where it proceeds to dry out to match the household humidity
and gets all out of shape.
