Pete in Holland MI
OK. I'm a pretty savy wood worker here. Entertaining the thought of a big slab live edge dining room table.
Once I find a log big enough to harvest my table from, I am wondering about the thing cupping as it dries.
Assuming I do all the right things about stickering, keep it level, & keeping it out of the rain & sun & wind, is cupping something that can be controlled by weighting or clamping the thing in it's current flat position, or will it just creep/spring to its untensioned shape once the clamps are released ?
Can cupping while drying be controlled & stay flat, or just let it go, and machine it flat, else it'll come back to haunt me?
