I started milling the lumber for the cabinets last night. I was going to start the glue up of the frame, but decided to let the wood adjust itself after the rough cut out. I am glad I did because this morning when I went to restart the fire I found one of the back rails had curled about 3/8 ths of an inch. I am making two cabinets at the same time so there were six rails I had cut. The good part is five of the six were still straight. I cut another and am now waiting another day to make sure everything stays put. I probably should wait a few more days, but I am pretty sure TLOML will not accept that explanation. The material is 4/4 soft maple. It was sawn four plus years ago. It has been stickered and resting in the barn half of my shop. I suspect that in cutting up the six to eight inch boards to 3” boards I released stresses that were in the boards. a couple days after cutting should be enough. I have used this material for other projects and that has been my experience with those projects as well.
