    I have a couple of alcove cupboards to build soon. I made some cabinet doors recently, but the warped slightly after a couple of weeks as they dried out and aclimatised.

    At the place I buy timber from, it sometimes feels damp to the touch so I try to let it dry out for as long as possible before using it, but what is gernerally an acceptable moisture content for timber being used for cabinets etc?

    Thanks
