    Hi Smitty,

    If you made them from solid wood, and the moisture content of the wood is very high, there is more than a good chance that you will get wood movement.

    How much, will depend on the orientation of the grain, the species of wood, the difference in moisture content.

    When working with solid woods it's always a good idea to bring the wood inside a week or two before using it in order to acclimate it to your shop.

    On the other hand, if your clocks were done in BB, you have no worries.

    If you do a lot of work with solid woods, it may be a good investment for you to get a moisture meter.

    I do recommend that you stack/store your wood in a place where it is protected from the environment (rain/snow/water runoff) in order to protect your investment as much as possible.


    Oh... and get a slicker to cut those 2 by's

    Regards,
    Marcel

    started a topic Hot and humid.

    Hot and humid.

    We are having a very hot and humid summer. Went out to the lumber pile yesterday to get some 2x4s I purchased this spring and had to drill holes in them to drain off the water to reduce them back to 2x4s. Cut one piece on the table saw and had to wear a rainsuit.
    Do you suppose the clocks I have made will be reduced in size when the humidity drops

    Maybe nothing has changed ? But is there anything that can be done to make it easier. The very large projects are difficult to copy over several pages and put together properly. I believe in making improvements and not preserving the status quo.

    I enjoy the challenge of cutting a project...

    This is not a problem with the magazine for my issue.. It is a problem with the book having resized the drawings without giving the actual size.

    I do again apologize for my post.. I cannot use the right words to explain it.. so maybe someone should just remove the post....

    Reading these replies, I am still trying to figure out what the problem really is. I haven't noticed changes in how they publish recently and I don't think I ever had trouble making copies of of the patterns I want to cut.

    How did you copy the patterns 10 years ago? What has changed?...

    I am very glad to hear this and that Fox will look into the issue. Hopefully, they can do some things to try to make it easier to copy patterns.

    First I didn't mean to stir up a hornet's nest. Sorry for that. I will share that Kaylee Schofield reached out to me after my post (not sure if this forum or Facebook. From my past experience with her, she cares. I do believe she will address this issue. I do not think she is the type of person...
