I’m with brian ^. I know a lot of guys are pretty religious about wood acclimation. I’m not at all. There are times when I buy wood and am working with it in 2 to 3 days. I haven’t ever run into too many problems, though the occassional board has moved on me a little bit. The reality of the situation is that I often decide I want to make something, but don’t want to wait 6 months to start it. It typically isn’t too big of an issue. I will say that the longer a project takes, the more issues you’ll have. Starting in June and Finishing in September probably isn’t too big of an issue. Starting in June and finishing in February could give you some trouble.
