Perfect Planks

From:Mike Schwartz  

To keep your building boards from cupping and need resurfacing, you need to seal the top/bottom and the sides of the board. If you only seal the top, humidity will cause the boards to cup or warp.   I have been using a board made of pine by the Perfect Plank Company in Oroville, Ca. I have been using this board since 1970. Bob Hunter and I bought 2 of them to build the Team Satellite models on them.  They are 24 in. wide and 8 foot long and 1 3/4 in thick. They are made from wide lamination strips of pine 2 in to 4 in wide glued together..  Perfect Plank makes butcher block counter tops out of pine, alder, maple, walnut and mahogany among others. They range from 12 in to 48 in wide and 24 in long to 144 in. long. They offer 2 thickness of boards 1 3/8 in and 1 3/4 in. My board has never warped in over 50 years of use. The boards are not light in weight. Check their web site for more information.
