I learned about growth stress when doing a compound miter cut on a 2×12. The wood pinched the blade so tight I couldn’t finish the cut or even lift the blade out of it. I had to lift the board, still attached to the blade, and use a hand saw to cut the board from the other side just to get it off the blade. Oddest thing is the board was straight as can be. Never would have seen that one coming, even now that I know about stress.
