I just cut some 1.5 inch wide strips from a wide board of 6/4 oak. I didn’t notice a bow in the original oak board, but each of the strips had a noticeable bow. I straightened the strips out on the jointer and I had to make a couple of passes on each side to do it.
Now I wonder – - Should I have waited awhile after cutting these strips before I straightened them. Is there a risk that they may still move some more?
FWIW, the oak had been acclimated to my shop for about 2 weeks.
