Dimensionally Stable Moisture Content

When building with Black Walnut, what is the % moisture that is considered dimensionally stable for boat building? Its going to be used in dry areas (flooring, cabinets and trim). I assume its the same as in land based wood working, but you dont know until you ask....
Thanks in advance.

Re: Dimensionally Stable Moisture Content

If you haven't already, try the Wooden Boat forum. IIRC, Richard Jagels, their resident expert covered this in a recent article.
