super quality feedback as usual. Good to know that this is still “wood movement”, I wasn’t clear if expansion/shrinking was only what qualified as such. Also interesting point about the chemicals on pallet wood, I had heard about it but didn’t factor it in for wood movement.

One follow up comments to what @justFL said re laying it flat… it was actually lying on a side when it first cupped and I put it flat on the table hoping that it would help to flatten it down. However I then left it on the table and it cupped again. So it doesn’t seem to matter how I store it, it’ll continue cupping either way, but from all the feedback it sounds like that’s ok and it will still work once I zclip it to the frame.

thanks again
