I’m new to woodworking (wonder how long I’ll be typing that?)...and I’d like to use cherry for my first project, perhaps many others because I love its rich medium tone.
My question in the form of a scenario…I go buy some rough lumber to mill myself. I bring it home…right off the bat I can’t touch it for 2 months…family crisis. After a couple of months I get to mill it down and I actually start on a couple of the parts, but then the holidays come around and i’m busy for another couple of months. All this time the wood is laying stacked imperfectly on my lumber rack in the upper area of my garage…it’s been a total of 5-6 months probably…do I have some boards with ghost lines where another board was laying crooked on top of it?
If this is a real probably that I have to deal with, how do I combat it? Also, that pretty much makes my nightstand useless for holding a lamp for a period of time, or I’ll see the ghost imprint of the lamp, right?
