Depending on the type of wood, yes. a good way to test if your piece of wood is holding any large amount of humidity is to first feel it. Is it smooth, and almost damp feeling? second is to squeeze the wood with your fingernails. now, this is dependent on the kind of wood, but most should be hard enough to not dent too much without holding water. third, and one of the easiest, put your humidity gage so close to the log so that it is touching it. if the level noticeably raises its probably not a good sign. Happy beardies!
