Thanks tropical storm Bill!!! When I started this project 2 weeks ago, wood tested 8% in multiple points, with an occasional flicker of 10. Jointed, planed, glued up the panels, drum sander to finish off before cutting dovetails. Panels have set for two weeks in my shop. I have let the air conditioner run, more to keep humidity down than keeping cool. It’s been a rainy, rather high humidity week. Returned to the shop today and found a very obvious bow in the front panel. Wood is now testing 12%. UGH!!!!!
Do you think if I crank a dehumidifier in the shop that as the moisture content returns to 8% the board will return to flat? Or am I stuck with what I got and need to make a new panel? Should I be concerned when the finished project is sitting in my nephew’s home?
Thanks for your thoughts and suggestions.
