A hickory board in the middle of a glue-up I just completed is exhibiting some major grain lifting on a flat-sawn section right in the middle. Card scraping and sanding aren’t helping because the surface where the problem is has actually sprung up a bit. Sanding just squishes the surface down flat temporarily, and it “springs” back up. I clearly should have inspected this board more carefully before using it, but now that I have, I’m hoping to find a way to recover. My thought is to force some 2-part epoxy into and under the lifting grain, and then clamp it down tightly until it dries. Followed by sanding. Has anyone done this kind of thing successfully? Any other options to recommend?
