During the years, I have read a lot of good information in this forum and now I would like to ask something for which I do not know the terminology in English (English is not my native language). Please forgive me for making my point with a lot more words than maybe what is needed.
I will work this project using kiln dried beechwood. I need to cut 2in x 6in or 2in x 8in boards of a length of 10ft, to pieces that will give me a final product which is cylinders, 1 3/8in in diameter and 7ft of length.
We all know that if one cuts such long pieces, no matter if the wood is kiln dried, they will bend. I was thinking of cutting these wide boards in half, then cutting pieces of 2in x maybe 2 1/2 in. Let those relax for some days, then come back with a long marking string to mark straight lines, cut them and square them to the desired dimensions.
Does anyone have a better suggestion or a link that will help?
Thank you for even reading through this post!
