Don't you hate when they do that. When i buy a lot of lumber i always rack them on top of each other and set something on them that is heavy they stay straight that way until your ready to use them.I have a 2x4 that was perfectly straight when I bought it from Lowe's 3 days ago. Now it is a combo rocking chair/corkscrew. Very frustrating getting wood up here.
A lot of the over kill on my loft was just to use up the extra wood like the pieces i put between the studs at the top and bottom, but it also served a purpose kept the studs from twisting.Been there on the kiln v. green. This was KD. Real bummer.
shady, this sucker was on the BOTTOM of the stack sitting on 3 stickers (0,2,8 ft). There must have been 200 LB of weight on it AND it was in the middle of the bottom layer. As we unstack the pile, it started to lift. It was quite surprising. This sucker is now being used to provide spacers between the floor and the lower stringers. Nothing goes to waste.
