I went to the lumber yard and picked out some straight 1x6s (pine) for a project and laid them flat on my basement floor. After a few days these boards had noticeably warped! It's hard enough finding straight boards without dealing with this.
It's kinda discouraging me to build any projects because I fear the same thing is going to happen (buy straight wood, take it home and it warps).
What is the solution to this? I can't work with the wood as it is now. Am I better off buying oak? Or kiln dried lumber, will that have less desire to warp?
