Can anyone give me tips on woodworking projects during extreme weather shifts? I am almost finished with a box of 3 different kinds of wood (cherry, poplar, and sweet gum). When it dropped from 65-70 degrees to mid 20’s, several joints came unglued and either the cherry expanded or the adjacent poplar shrank. What do? I believe the weather shift is responsible.
