I have a 3/4" thick plywood piece that is 18" X 6'. The bow is about in the middle of the length. It has about a 3 - 4" bow in it. I have some weight on it now but don't have a whole lot of tinme for it to straighten. Will the weight work or will I need to steam or soak it?
TIA
Mike

It's the center upright for a set of double shelves. The shelves are adjustable but there should be enough shelves on both sides to hold it fairly straight. It will be fastened at the top and bottom. Maybe I will put in one permanate shelve on each side to hold it straight. Yeah, that ought to do it. And I'll just tell her (DD) thats the way it's supposed to be. Uh-hu

I put the shelves in yesterday. It worked fine. The shelves hold the board straight. I did try putting weight on the bow for about two weeks. Didn't seem to help any at all.
