I believe trees are taking revenge on us for cutting them down!!!!! Sometimes it is very dramatic and destructive Bigger aint' always better but useually it is more subtle, like boards warping or splitting during a build, or the ability of some species to change its size between the time we measure and mark and when we make the cut. How else do we explain the times when we KNOW we measuerd a board correctly but it ends up 1/8th of an inch or more short! I know some of you may think I’m Looney for believing this but I’m sure there is ample evidence to support this theory

There is so much moisture in the tree it has to be dried before you can get any kind of accurate measurement

After years of research I’ve discovered the root problem of the “too short” cut. I call it C.O.T.E. – Curvature Of The Earth. Every time A cut ends up short, it’s because I forgot to take that into consideration.
