After milling, the wood will start drying faster and, as it does, it will start moving. It's likely to warp, crack, and check in places. If it's already fastened together as a project, it's going to be a disaster. If you let it air dry for a year first, it should be fine.

Wood for exterior projects can have a somewhat higher moisture content and be okay (say around 15%), but green wood is too much.
