Karson: I have been pondering your first question for a couple of weeks. Can you do me a favor, and check the moisture content of something that has been in your house for several years. For instance, the back of a kitchen cabinet drawer, or a dresser drawer side. Somewhere that won’t hurt to have 2-pin holes. If you can do that, then give me the reading you get, and that will help me answer your question about moisture content between different geographic regions. There are many of you out there that live on the coasts, and the moisture is different for sure. What is most important, is the moisture content in the home that the furniture sits in. For instance, my 6-year old kitchen cabinets drawer sides read 7% moisture content.
