I am nearing the end of a birdseye and walnut jewelry box (mitered corners all around with an open front for drawers) and I wanted to get a head start on finishing the carcass as I was building the drawers. Well, I applied the finish and set the pieces aside to dry.
I guess the sun was perfectly aligned, heated the pieces and the top and bottom are slightly twisted. The back is severely twisted. Any way to correct with clamp pressure? As all the joints are miters, I can’t just plane it out as that changes all of the dimensions.
Any ideas? Can I put the pieces under clamp pressure and hope they come back? Could I sandwich them between two boards and put them in an oven? Anything?
