I have planed a lot of curly maple both hard and soft. Curl rips easily especially the hard. The water trick works well for me and I use it often. However this summer I planed some wood on a very very humid day without wetting the wood and I had very little rip out in that batch. Now I’m curious about whether wood will plane with less rip out in humid weather. If anyone has any thoughts or experience with this situation please tell me about it.
