Dealing with wood defects
Solution: Rip a wide, cupped board into narrow flat sections, as shown in Photo B, below right. Rip each piece slightly wider than you need, then re-rip or joint the edges square to the face. You even can glue these sections back together to create a wide board.
Transform mildly cupped lumber into flat, thinner boards. First, joint the concave face flat, then plane the other face parallel.
