To those who are giving drying advice…. These pieces were (I’m told) in a covered shed for about 10 years. I assumed that they were as dry as they were ever going to be. In retrospect, I think that I should have let them sit inside my shop for a few weeks to acclimate to a different humidity level.

But assuming that these pieces were drying for 10 years (I checked two pieces – one was at 7.8% and one was at 13.1%), other than letting them sit in my shop for a bit, do I still need to go through the makeshift kiln or paper bag and chips routine? I guess, to be on the safe side, I can weigh each piece before I bring it inside and then weigh it again after a few weeks to see if there is a change?
