Boy what a night. I was going along ripping my boards quite nicely…I know most of my boards aren’t straight straight so right now I am just rough ripping…anyway I have a jig for cutting down panels…you know the one a piece of plywood with a stop that you run your circ saw down…Well I had a board that was bowed just a bit so i went and ripped the edge with my jig…put it on my concrete floor and “WHAT THE HE double hockey sticks” the bow was worse. Took my jig and placed it on the floor…boom its got a bow in it too…..sigh luckily I only was ripping a quarter inch…tomorrow I am off to get some MDF.
