Well I'm not out of the woods yet, I checked all those boards with the wave in them (about 40 8 footers) and they have the wave in the face also.

Problem is, i don't know how to fix them, i don't think my 12" planer will work because the rollers would bend with the boards (i think?).

So is there another way to fix them? There all 1 1/16" thick and about 6 1/4" wide. Or is it now firewood? :(

Thanks, R.T.

R.T.,

Yes, you can save the boards. What you need to do is run one face over a jointer before taking them to the planer.

There is no need to say 'unleaded regular gas'. It's all unleaded. Just say 'regular gas'. It's not the 70s anymore. (At least that's what my wife tells me.)

Ok thanks DouginUtah, one thing for sure, I'll pay more attention to this kind of stuff from now on, I can't believe I didn't see it before i got as far as i did. Just got into a hurry because of the rain, I should have just quit.

Do you think i should let these boards dry before i run them through the jointer and planer? I'm thinking all the sap in the pine will be a problem.

Anyway, thanks for your help!

For sure you want the boards to be dry when you surface them.  They may decide to move a bit as they are drying and you can take that out when you plane them.  Once surfaced, you haven't enough material to remove to redo them.
I eat a high-fiber diet.  Lots of sawdust!

Minnesota_boy,

ok thanks, yeah I'll be lucky to end up with 1/2" boards by the time i get done playing with these things, and then theres the ware and tear on my machines, starting to think I'd be better off chalking this one up to experience and turn them into firewood.  :-[
