The recent 2X4 contest was the most resawing I’d done I think ever.

Gluing the thin strips had the added challenge that the freshly resawn boards had uneven moisture content.

Clamping the glue-up to a piece of scrap ply allowed both the glue and the workpiece to dry flat at the same time. The initial cupping tendency disappeared by the next day in the clamps.
