Hi guys, I need some help
Recently helped a friend make a really nice hope chect, similar to the two hope chests I made for my kids. His is made with oak. The project came out beautiful, we’ll post it soon. The problem developed after the finish was applied. The top twisted and lifted about 2” on the front side so now it does not sit flat anymore. Prior to finishing the top was perfectly flat and looked great. The design of the top of the chest is like my “More Hope” project.
So the question …... Can one remove atrwist after the stain and poly is applied? I’m thinking cleats might not hurt but probably won’t help much either. The cleats I’m thinking about are like the one’s on the new cover of Fine Woodworking. My buds Hope Chest is about the same size but all glued up solid wood.
Anyone have any suggestions?
