my new table saw manual states that if i make a sacrificial fence of hardwood, then it should be kiln dried. is this really necessary? or will a basic piece of maple or oak suffice?

Your basic pc of oak or maple may be kiln dried ? That is just a recomendation to insure to a higher degree that your fence will (may) stay in fairly constant dimension, free from warping, cupping,etc. If you used a pc with extremely high moisture content and was very securly attached to your fence it could distort your fence while curing. Go bies. or go home. Enjoy JB

Make it out of MDF, it stays straight. No need to worry about mosture, cupping, warping…
