Steve, I have also found this out after the fact. What I do now is to cut/resaw all of my 3/4” to 1” and let them set for a couple of days. maybe more, to see what warping or twisting occurs. After that “rest” I then plane them to thickness and have found “less” warping occurs this way. As mentioned above, keeping assembly as close to final sizing is your best bet, when ever you can.
