Alternating grain to avoid cupping
I just joined so do tell me if I have to do an introduction or something first, don't want to annoy the mods :).
I'm about to start a new project of a tv cabinet, its quite large and has a wine rack and whatever else built in. When I was selecting my boards I made sure they were all wider than the carcass (450mm) so I could rip them up the middle and re-glue to ensure they would be stable. I wasn't planning on flipping the board to alternate the grain because there was going to be 5 shelves over a 1500mm span rebated and glued in which I feel would keep the gables stable. I am beginning to have second thoughts though. Hopefully someone can help me out.
