I do have a stack of 2", air dried walnut slabs that need to go through the kiln at some point here in the next month-ish.

@GeneWengert-WoodDoc has recommended an attic space, but do not know if you can get them in.  I am in Ks and occ check.  my oak table is at 7.2%.  ac all summer long.  I would check wood items in you home and make that your target.  If it will remain sort of rustic, then a little movement may not be as obvious.  will these be solitary objects or have joints.  my outside elm 2" live edge is 8.6% just under a tarp.  of course we have different locals and conditions.  Is 15% as low as you can go in your part of NY.  I lived in Albany for 4 years.  My ac was out for 2 months this summer in my shop and finally the new ac has caught up with all the humidity that soaked back into all the dry wood I have in there.  I have been dumping a 5 gallon bucket of water a day for a month.  it is down to 45% in there @ 70.

well these slabs are definitely not perfect. there are defects that will be included in the final product. The biggest problem is the 3 sided scribe. So I am slightly concerned with it shrinking more and pulling off the walls. But if that happens a backsplash is not the end of the world. Do keep wondering if I will need to epoxy them just to fill the spots around the knots.

the attic is not a bad idea. I should try to get those up there this week. Only problem is the attic is in the shop so its not heated or conditioned. I do think we have a few more weeks of hot at least.

I think Dr. Wengert has stated that if it is 15 warmer than ambient it will help.  or cover in plastic or just put it in your house. but it is bigger than flooring that can acclimate in a few weeks.  yes if it shrinks, and it will some,at least a quarter round
