Twist and Shout!

I bought a nice 8′ piece of quarter sawn Sapele to make picture frames.  I ripped it and put it on the shooting board to cut the rabbet for the picture to fit in.  I had to clamp in down to cut the rabbet and when I un-clamped  it, check out what happened.

I’ll cut this into shorter sections to make the frame, but I’m not sure if that’s going to help.  Sigh …

    Well, that’s a bummer! The Sapele I’ve gotten has been really, really stable. (I’m probably going to regret saying that next time I go in the shop…)

    I used some maple that moved on me every time I planed it. It ended up in a fire 🙂
