Thank you. Yes, I did change the board around. The cup is still in the same place and, I think, getting worse. It’s happened to the hickory board too.

I eventually ended up jointing the cupped ash board. And what I ended up with was exactly what I was afraid of: A very thin board that still wasn’t perfectly straight. I had to remove so much material to get past the cupping that the board was basically toast. A few board feet of ash down the drain.

This wood movement has been a huge problem for me. It wasn’t as bad during the summer, though it did happen. But it’s cold now and the humidity is always high.

I’ll see if I have enough scrap wood to make a sticker pile. And if I have enough floor space for a sticker pile.
