While this question for the group knowledge base probably is not of any real significance, I figure that someone here has the answer, so, since it’s been bugging me all morning, here goes.
I stopped at a big home improvement lumber type store this morning (that shall remain nameless, but it starts with “M”) and I was walking through the lumber area (no, I didn’t buy any…I didn’t need any “propeller” shaped 2×4’s or “c” shaped 2×2’s) but I noticed something that kind of puzzled me. As I walked through the plywood area, I noticed a significant number of 4×8 sheets of various kinds & thicknesses of plywood that were bowed as much as 4” across the 4’ span.
As I always thought that the “ply” concept and changing grain directions eliminated the warping problem, I”m wondering just how this can be.
Has Menards (oops) figured out a way to defy the laws of physics? Is the time/space continuum in jeopardy? Is Chinese wood just that crappy?
What’s happening, here.
My world no longer makes sense…Have the basic laws of nature been violated? Are old Shopsmith’s not the greatest & coolest tool on the planet? (sorry, had to throw that one in here)
Anyway, does anyone know the answer to all this? (or really care?) -SST
