I am in the middle of building a farm style dining room table. The attached image is the end view of the table. The (4) pieces labeled leg components are smooth sawn/planed from cedar fence posts that were not kiln dried. They were “wet” when I bought them a month ago so I “stickered” them in my Colorado garage for the past month or so. Last night went I went to cut and plane them down, the outside of the 4×4 posts were fairly dry. When I rough cut them to length, I noticed about a 2” diameter circle in the middle of the post was still “wet”. I would like to assemble the legs of the table and attach the 3×3 pieces together with biscuits and glue. Am I asking for trouble with the wood still being wet? I don’t plan on putting a finish on them for another month or so.
Just checked the August averages for humidity and they are around 40%.
Any ideas would be much appreciated.
Here are some more pics of the top to date….assembled but not sanded or finished.
