The answer is you can use it any time but for furniture I prefer 6-8% moisture content. The more moisture you have in your wood the greater the chance for distortion like cupping,twisting shrinking .Some folks get in a hurry to build their furniture pieces before the woods dry and and suffer all kinds of problems. This is beautiful wood if you have a project you really want to build right away you can take it and have it kiln dried to speed up the process.
