Dining room, northeastern corner of Mississippi. I understand what your saying, wood doesn t necessarily move 1” per foot or some other crazy amount but it still can t be ignored. The movement in my example was about 1/4”, not a big deal when fastened correctly. This movement tends to be consistent horizontally. If you try to stop that 1/4” of movement, you will lose. Mother Nature will always win. If not allowed to move horizontally then it will move vertically. This causes warping, some may tolerate a table corner to be an 1/8” or so off, some may not. I tend to lean towards the “not”.

I agree, down South lots of Humidity!!!
