Dry that stuff! The tenor of the remarks above re: moisture content and movement are in line with my experience. Since I found a steady source for decent hardwood pallets (and made a kiln with scavenged material) I’ve hardly gone back to my local mill and my stock is great. The trick is to keep the pipeline full: while one batch is drying another wet pile is growing, and all the while I’m working with whatever has already been dried and and dimensioned. Plenty here about kilns and air-drying, so start with some research there and then see where things go.
