Easily the most emails I receive from people who are having problems with their wood and or their wood projects are issues that come from using wet wood. That is ... wood that has a moisture content above the recommended 9% that is often used as the guideline for making quality furniture. Most who I talk to don't even know what the moisture content of their wood is and very, very few own moisture meters.

Moisture content is almost never talked about but it is THE most important issue when you are buying wood because almost everything that falls out of your builds that becomes problematic is a result of the high moisture contained in your wood.
