You can get air-dried if you wait, at least in Northern CA. I am about to put down a floor of black acacia which has been cut & stickered a bit over a couple of years, and it’s about 8% or so. It was dried & stickered in the house (I set the stack in the kitchen over a vent with weight on it, and built tunnels through the stack to push the hot air through it for two winters). B/c it was a year down at 1” thick when it went into the house, it didn’t crack or anything and it’s now ready to be put down.
