Topic tags/keywords: cupped dimensioning

So cutting the long rails for my sideboard and the lumber is quite badly cupped. I’d rather not lose the thickness to joint it flat so I was wondering if I could re-saw it and then glue it back together clamping it flat. Would this work?

Doubt that would work, but you could try it on some scrap piece. I think you will find it will take out some of the cup but not all.

Rip it into narrower pieces, joint (you won’t lose nearly the thickness) and reglue….If you are careful, you should hardly notice the gluelines….

That sounds like a clever solution. Let us know how it works.

Worked perfectly :) Flat as a pancake and the glue line is imperceptible and won’t be in a particularly visible spot anyway.
