It's going to change with the seasons anyway, Barry. We have a large solid wood buffet that lets out a sharp 'crack' at least twice a day, as the temp/humidity changes.
When we first bought it (at an Estate sale) we brought it home and put into our dining room of the place where we lived at that time (1983?). The house was electrically heated, and we didn't have a humidifier. Within two days one of the solid wood side panels cracked...
Bought a humidifier next day...took a week for it to stop running non-stop, ie the humidistat was finally satisfied. Betcha it went through 5 gal. of water!
