I don’t know where you are buying your lumber, but if it’s kiln dried, you should only have to give it a few days at most to acclimate to your shop. If it’s air dried lumber, it would probably be a good idea to have a moisture meter to be sure your wood has reached an acceptable moisture level for your area.

I usually buy for each project, but they aren’t my projects – they are for clients. I usually buy some extra so I have a variety on hand when I have time to build something for myself.
