I would not advise the use of air dried lumber to build furniture.


Why not???? There is plenty of furniture out there that has lasted 75+ years that was air dried.
And there is plenty of furniture and dwellings being built today that has been lucky enough to avoid the kiln.

I’m pretty sure that kilns were mostly invented to shorten the time from “forest to user”.
