Green wood would be a poor idea in the attic for sure, but wood that is already at 12%, and you want to take it to 8%, that would be fine.

With your humidity in Texas, I would build with the 12% wood and allow for a bit of shrinkage. However, if you go the attic route, you will get to your goal in a couple of weeks for sure. Inside my house in Georgia, stickered behind the couch, starting in April, it took 4 weeks for red oak to go from 13% to 9.5%. It stayed at 9.5% until August, which was when I used the oak for wainscotting in the house.
