Whether you air dry them as a table or alone on a rack/garage or any other means of drying space, other than a kiln, it's going to dry about the same.
Got any pics?

A lot depends on how it is built. A lot of the rustic & Shaker furniture is built to take wood movement into account-- as with floating panels and through mortises. As long as you use these techniques, the furniture will be fine. Bugs are another issue. We had powder post beetles in some hickory furniture, and trust me, you don't want 'em in your house.
