The standard content of moisture in furniture is about 1 percent more or less than the local average moisture content in atmosphere.
According to furniture designer, the content of moisture in wood can directly affect the quality and use situation of wooden furniture. If the content of moisture is too low, the wood will absorb moisture in air so that furniture are easy to expand. If the content of moisture is too high, furniture are easy to crack.
