Acclimating to my shop
Yesterday I was finally able to pick up the lumber that I need to make a new coffee table top. Just about all of my lumber is rough cut and I do all of the milling myself. In the past I’ve used lumber that has been in my shop for a while so I've never had to ask this question. This time, the lumber that I purchased is needed as soon as possible for this project. My wife has told me that, so it’s true. The lumber yard stored the lumber in an air conditioned warehouse. My garage shop is not air conditioned but I do have a dehumidifier. I keep the dehumidifier set to 60% and it rarely runs even though the outside humidity, here in Florida during the summer, can reach 90%. Like breathing water.
I always rough mill and cut my project pieces oversize and let them re-acclimate to the shop for a day or two before I finish milling and cutting to final size.
The lumber in question: I purchased two 8/4 x 7”x9’ black walnut boards (and they are really black), one 8/4 x 5” x 7’ hard white maple, and one 4/4 x 5” x 8’ birds eye maple. All boards have been kiln dried. I will resaw the black walnut to end up with final size between 3/4" - 7/8".
Now, my question. Since I just moved the boards from the lumber yard’s air-conditioned warehouse to my garage shop, how long should I wait for them to acclimate to my shop before I start to rough mill them?
As always, thanks for your help.
