Lesson Learned: Do not store wood leaning up against wall for extended amount of time. It will very likely lead to warping/bowing which makes things ever more difficult while building. If wood for a project is not going to be used for a little while we now store it horizontally to avoid warping. It does take up more room, but you’ll be happy you did it in the end.
We learned this lesson the hard way while completing our Madison Table Hutch project (post coming soon). We were able to make everything work, not without a lot of pushing, pulling, grunting and cursing.
