Blanket Chest #2: ARGGGG!!!! crack split in glued up panel

1602 days ago by AaronK | 5 comments »

so i had completely glued up the panel that is to become the top of the blanket chest I’m building, when all of a sudden i notice a MASSIVE crack in one of the boards right along the grain. It’s in the nicest piece too, with grain shifting towards quarter-sawn texture. CRAP. I guess that’s one of the hazards with using reclaimed wood… stuff could have been abused in its previous incarnation. anyway, I basically bent it until it snapped along the grain and am now in the middle of jointing the two edges and finding a suitable piece of lumber to glue up to one edge to get it back to the right width. how frustrating!
