Talking Talk about warping- I wish I could do this

Was at Lowes yesterday and saw this lumber for sale. I would like a couple of these boards to make something curved.

I canít tell you how many times I needed a board to curve like this and couldnít do it. Itís not exactly the kind of wood I normally work with but with a curve as perfect as some of these are, I should be able to come up with something. Only problem is that you have to buy the whole bundle and I donít want to pay that much.

consider this

I think they are bundled to get rid of the curved ones. Offer to buy only the curved ones for a minimum as see what they say.... maybe free?

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

I don’t know about free. I found a little 6-7” piece of ĺ”x 2” oak in their trash can that would have been perfect for a fill in on a project I was doing and they said they have to charge me for it. They would rather throw it in the landfill than let it go to some use.

I could use the curved 2x4s for an arch in a trellis over a walkway.

I had a piece of plywood that was a perfect 4’ radius curve and I was planning on making a small skateboard ramp for the neighborhood kids until someone mentioned that I could get sued if one got hurt.

Try taking a board and keeping the underside wet and set it in the sun. I bet it would bow up that much.
