I pop on here every once in a while, like when I need help. :p
I am making Mahogany frames for 6' tall bookshelves. Very simple
2" x 3/4" wood. When I purchased the wood, I asked what a stable
wood would be so it does not warp on me. He said they are all fine.
So it warped right after I cut the 2" strips. Duh.
So now the long rectangular frames are glued together, mostly OK
but one is still warped as a hole, which means one corner of the door will
stick out maybe 1/2" and will not line up with its matching door other side.
So my big question is can I straighten it up before I stain and finish it?
If so, how? Should I use water or steam? Or will that warp it up more
in other places? I am clamping it - pushing it in the opposite direction a
bit for now.
