Hi Steve
I agree with the folks above, but the thing to do is to always make your material is to long.to wide and to thick and do your final trimming as close to assembly time as possible. Another mistake folks make is when the plane wood the plan everything off of one side instead alternating from one side to the other,this helps keep the moisture content equal and helps keep your wood from twisting,cupping and other having problems. Even with all of the above tips some wood just has inter tension and still will warp and twist no matter what you do.
