interesting that you have had no replies to this question,,
have always heard that the finer quality furniture builders perfer the aged wood as it is more stable and less likely to change size since it has been aged for several years at a determined humidity,,
how much would the same type and cut of wood adjust in size if aged one year, ten years and twenty years at the same RH level,,???
would imagine this preference would be the same in any wood product where final quality is expected to be high,,
