Beginner here with a problem/question
Hello all. So i am very novice when it comes to wood working. I did quite a bit of it in shop class in high school but that was 10 plus years ago.
I just went and picked up some 4/4 ash over the weekend. It had already been planed smooth and had a half way straight edge on it. Moisture content was approx. 8% i tested it with a cheap moiature meter that i bought. Guy said it was kiln dried and i have no reason to think it was not.
So i have cut the boards into 1 1/2 inch strips 37 inches long each. The stripps bowed every which way possible right while cutting. I no longer have straigt pieces. What could the cause be for this to happen?
Im thinking thats its how narrow the boards are any info would be great. Thanks
