I am concerned with bowing and twisting.
I stack it up so it makes me feel like the heavy-ness will provide flatness, which may be wrong.
The wood already (being in-the-rough) has bows and twists and cups, that’s for milling.
But CAN I help my wood stock from being prone to getting worse.
Laying it flat, or vertical.
I always cut up my shipments outside because it come very long, 10-12-14-16
So I crosscut it to 6’-9’ lengths that are manageable for me to wrangle into my shop and lift on racks for the wait till the operation. Dr. Steve…yes…we have a 7’ 6/4” piece of Cherry for surgery…OK, I’ll scrub, LOL, ha
