We have rain forecast for the next few days, and the shop will definitely see an increase in humidity. I have been reading lately that it is better to wait out the storm and cut wood when the humidity returns to “normal”.
More importantly, I am going to be making 3 desks and 2 tables, all with tapered legs cut from 10/4 and 12/4 stock. Is it better to face joint and plane this stock as a wide board, then rip to width, or would it be better to rip to a rough width on the bandsaw, let those pieces acclimate, and then joint/plane each leg individually? Any thoughts on doing this ahead of the storm?
