What they said! I’m supposed to replace kitchen doors and drawers with hickory. Even dry – 5+ yrs in heated storage after solar kiln, I have a heck of a time getting rails and stiles, and panels true. Tried some of the other recommendations of others multi planing, stored under pressure/weight, or rip and reglue to relieve the stress in the board. Only option left is to make an appointment with the psychologist for the hickory—stress relief. Always good smoking wood. Good luck. Steve, On Wisconsin.
