uglogirl Posted January 30, 2006 Report Share Posted January 30, 2006 Hi since I was finishing up my reanimated franken-caster I took a look at the wood I bought last summer thinking of building something from scratch. I was surprised to see that one of the two 1 7/8" maple body halves had warped... it has a bend across the grain of maybe 1/16" - 1/8" or so (need to measure). The other piece is still perfectly ok. I don't suppose that it can be "unwarped" ... would it be OK to have it thinned flat again, taking the convex and concave sides down to flat - then planing the other side to match? I'd have to take this to a wood shop to have it done as I have no power tools. It can go thinner with no problem... it had to be thinner anyway to end up with the right thickness after I would glue on the very figured mahogany top which is 3/8". Just mainly concerned that the piece is usable after warping? I probably won't start this for a while as it's a pretty ambitious project for me. thanks, Kiira Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
