    Finding n removing twist with a power planer

    Thats also a awesome looking clamp table looking thing. you should put up some more pics n explain how that works. looks like the clamping part is plenty wide enough to hold boards while u plane them. thing is the surface the board sits on has to be dead flat right

    and i have to be embarrassing honest with ya. I usually use 2 by 4s i pull out of the junk pile because its free. really with my skill level n what i want to achieve i couldn't afford to do it any other way. Short. i have basically only worked with a 2 by 4 about 48" long. Is that short ? Thanks again boys.

    air dry kiln

    Has anyone every made an air dried kiln inside youre home for drying wet lumber. i know where i can get some yellow ceder at a good cost because its dark n needs major work to be used for anything good. Ive seen some ideas but just wondering what othrs do to dry there wood. 1 thing i read somewhere is buddy picked a couple projects he planned for the year. witch sounds like a good idea to me sence i work 5 days a week n have a family bla bla bla. so he picked his projects got some wood n set it out to dry. This post kinda all comes back to the other ones ive wrote. so i had a template n was working my way to a chair. then realized its all gonna bend n twist n look like crap after its all done. Is this true. the wood i get is from the depot.

    i wish my shop looked like that. lol im such an inexperienced tradesmen, coming along n seeing why things suck but its a painful process. its also 7' long by 5' wide. looking at the router table i built a while ago. Its so dam big n heavy. i was gonna put casters n drawers but i cant see how much room it takes up for how much it gets used to make ti worth it. 1 day at a time. I remember what was bugging me was someone womewhere put them on the diagonals to check for twist. Is that right ? and knots have lots to do with keeping twist ?

    moisture content

    Does wood have to be a 10% or whatever the perfect number is for furniture. chairs mostly is on my mind. Have a template n a router for the back legs. Even if i dident use a router when u start to join everything together will it bend n twist extremely if its not on the perfect number n what can i get away with. thanks again

    Finding n removing twist with a power planer

    Wow this site is awesome. Thanks for all the help fellas. I’m an eager n inexperienced so much appreciated. Reslly why I asked was I knew about sighting down the length to find the hi n low spots but somewhere this morning i read about from diagonal to diagonal. Yes electric hand planer. I used 2 squares with the board on a piece of MDF to find the hi n low. I planed the hi spots till they were close then the side I planed went face down through the thickness planer but came out still rocking. There was also a knot that I think was twisting it so it rocked. Basicsly im trying to make some chairs n furniture but I want close to perfect boards first. I don’t like the rocking. Im also a diy google professional lol so I’ve seen every video I can imagine. I think I was just pissed because it was close then after the thickness plane it still sucked. I’m sure someone will hear me out there. Thanks again fellas.
