If it s cupping right after you cut it, it was kiln dried and done so incorrectly. The immediate cupping is the relief of stress bullt up during the drying process which was probably done too quickly. Getting the wood wet again as you see it at the BORG will not repair the damage done by incorrect drying. I would be searching for a different supplier.

Hard to find anywhere else near me except the two big box retailers. They both have plenty of wet cedar and I mean wet. Wouldn’t this mean that they don’t dry it in any way? Would I be better off only buying the wet in fall or winter. and let it slowly air dry?
