One makes things as tight as they can during the humid summer seasons, then, during the drier months of winter, the wood will shrink a bit. Whether it is a set of doors, or drawers, or even a lid, that is how is was done back then.

Did the old-timers care IF the board cracked from shrinkage? Not really, because they knew come summertime, that all them cracks would close up again.
