I have been purchasing lumber for the next couple projects after I get this one done. I have been bringing in the lumber and stickering it in the unheated garage (the workshop) to let it acclimate to me. How long do you keep wood stickered before you move it to a rack. It is kiln dried maple, walnut, and oak, the place I buy from is about 30 miles away from my place and the wood is stored there in racks unstickered. How long does it need to be kept stickered before I can move it to a lumber rack that is not stickered? I am in St. Louis, so bit changes in humidity over time, but no salt air.
Does anyone store their lumber in their climate controlled house and move it back and forth to your shop to work on? I’ve seen hintings that you will have trouble with fine furniture moving a lot if it is built in a garage and then taken into homes. How do you handle this (short of getting a climate controlled shop, which isn’t in the cards with my HOA.
