Thanks Dave and Loren… I think I might try those methods in the future. As for now, I have 2 cheery planks I acquired from a fellow towns person which have spent the last 40 years stored in the corner of his barn. Got them dirt cheap, but they’re very twisted and rough. They were so twisted I had to cut them into shorter pieces to manage them, but I seem to be making good progress. I tried David’s method in the past but my success was ruined by my impatience. I will try the gentle approach. I’m willing to try Loren’s method, but how long of a board have you had success with? Solving problems is no problem for me… it’s my greatest woodworking pleasure. Even when I fail at ideas and attempts, I learn more. I have made so many mistakes in the past, I’m actually getting good at woodworking.
