I don’t really understand why you’d do this – given that you’re going to wait to put the false fronts on, why not wait to make the boxes? If you bring the wood inside I think you’ll be surprised at how quickly it dries to equilibrium.
On the other hand, it just might work. And I’d be interested in learning the results of the experiment. The shrinkage from 15 to 6 percent is not that great, and you might well be OK, although I expect that if you did it more than a few times the law of averages would catch up with you. Do you have a moisture meter? I see you’re on the east coast, and wood dried to 6% could well be considerably higher than that, even inside.
