hi guys, im making a knitting needle holder for an old neighborhood friend and shipping it from the Philadelphia to Daytona florida, should I worry about the change in climate affecting it? its gonna be maple from 50 year old church pews oiled and waxed or should I spray lacquer it? thanks any advice is greatly appreciated….I really wasn’t worried( im a novice at woodwork) but I talked to a guy at a wood carving show recently and he said his first ever box was shipped to Alaska and it arrived as firewood

Humidity levels in these two locations are close enough, along with the age of your wood, that there should be no issues with expansion and contraction.
