    Hey all. First time poster. I've got a 14" x 12" x 3" box that I'm making out of Padauk. Put the Padauk on the CNC and it milled great. But I've noticed that it is warping more and more each day (see the image attached). I live in dry desert-ish Colorado, so moisture is very low. I...

    Hello all! Newbie here. Just got my shop put together/finished last year but have been working for a little over two years. Still very amateur. I made this pipe box for my brother in law last summer and really felt great about how it turned out. It is made from red oak and was finished with...

    I have a pressure-treated 6x6 post pergola on my back deck. I have added a little design element and made some post bases that I've just lightly nailed on. I wasn't sure if I was going to like it when I installed it last fall, so I had only put in two or three nails in to temporarily hold it on...

It did the trick...it is flat once again! But, now how do I keep it that way? I have a kiln (foam box and dehumidifier)...should I put...

    I am wanting to build a dining table out of 8/4 white oak, and I am concerned about it cupping after it is glued up and planed. It will be roughly 8' long and 3' wide. What is the best way to glue it and ultimately design it to prevent it from warping with the change in temps?

    I have a stable straight length of dense wood sized 2x4 and 3 feet in length. It is age dried for 10+ years. Half inch round dowels are cut from this block. Approximately 20% of these dowels later twist or warp. What is happening structurally that causes these dowels to twist? Is there any...

    I am restoring a 1948 larson fishing boat. It is aluminum with a wood rim and trim. the problem I have is choosing the wood and warping it to fit the shape of the bow. I want to go with a grain that will stand out with a multi-stain finish. Also I don't really know what I'm going to need to do...
