Will air dried work?
I have a client looking for a few square blocks 7/8" thick for a special project. He wants a circle with a 3/16" kerf, 1/4" deep cut into which he is going to glue a round piece of glass with silicone. Glass should be about 1/16" thick.
My question is will air dried cherry, magnolia, sycamore and /or pecan work for this? All has been air dried just over 2 years and shows 12 to 14% mc. Some is 8/4 some is 4/4.
I'm concerned that when the wood gets into someones home the bound water will start to be released and cause the wood to crack and maybe crack the glass.
What cha think?
