What is "Moisture content" - Definition & Explanation

Measure of the amount of water in wood. Measured as a percent of dry weight of the wood. For example, if a piece of wood weighs 10 pounds when oven dried and 12 pounds before drying, the piece is said to be 20% moisture content (2 lbs water / 10 pounds wood). Typical kiln-dried lumber has 6-10% moisture content.
