I have some 6' long 2"x12" planks of douglas fir that dried into a twist, I need to straighten it out but I don't want to plane this any thinner. So basically I'm trying to bend the board back into shape.
I was thinking of doing something like physically twisting the board the other way past its yield point, and hoping the board does not snap. Maybe I could try steam bending to straighten wood.
I am planning on making 6' long benches and shelves with this material, for indoor use.
