In a couple of months (when temps warm back up) I plan on a major kitchen remodel. This will include me attempting to build my own kitchen cabinets. I have built face frame cabinets before but farmed out the door and drawer panels as I didn’t have the tools to do them. Now I’m going to give it all a try. My concern is that my “woodwork shop” is simply my garage. No climate control with the exception of the doors so I’m a bit concerned that if I go buy a lot of wood (currently considering soft maple) that it may be affected by temp change and moisture before I can use it all. As the lone worker I suspect this will take me quite a while.
So my question is:
1. Would it be a good idea to store the wood inside the house (even though it isn’t necessarily a low moisture space)?
2. Will I have major problems with wood changing size after I’ve cut and assembled the doors and bring them inside?
