Another wood movement phenomenon I’ve read about is where wood tries to expand, and if it can’t, the fibers can be crushed to the point where it will not expand when the humidity drops. The example was on turned chair parts, where they expand, are held by the round mortises, and then when the humidity drops they can be loose. It actually looks like the wood shrunk, when it was actually crushed.
