Hello everyone,
I have a pc of 1/4 thick x 8” wide x 6 feet long pc of solid bloodheart,
it has a curl in it, the plan is to use it for tone board (instrument) front and back, it will be cut down to about 18” long,
any ideas on how to make it flat ?
Many Thanks, the next round is on me !

Hey Dog, I don’t know how bad the curl is, but if you cut it 18”, it should be 4 times less curly. If it’s a stand alone flat piece of wood, I don’t think you can remove it permanently. .......... Jerry (in Tucson)
