Hello Peoples, I know Iv’e asked this question before, maybe a couple of times but I need to ask it again, thanks for your understanding. I am trying to mill out my fourth load ” for this project” of quater sawn White Oak. It’s 8/4” select rough cut. I flatten the concave side first, flip the board on end and plane the other side, Whats happening is as I’m planning the the other side, after a few passes where its taking full cuts the board is now starting to bow. Oh yeah the board is 8/4×5 1/2” x 51” long by now its probably 1 3/4 to 1 15/16” thick. Am I taking out too much wood at one time, My objective is to get to 3/4” thick by 3” wide by 51” long. Should I resaw first before I worry about milling both sides flat and If so how thick should I resaw off, so that Im sure to have enough to get a 3/4” finnished product. Any help here would be real nice This is just about to drive me crazy. I can cut the boards down to shorter pieces and not have any problems It just when i try to get these long 51” rails do I have this problem.
-- Ive cut this board three times and its still too short?
