Wrapped 24 hours after I got it home. This after sorting through dozens at store to find a straight one. You need to speak with your supplier and institute QC at each store. I.e. moisture testing, pull sample boards from shipment and inspect for warping and defects.

The wood itself was fine. The quality control cutting the lumber could be better. Both thickness and width vary by 1/8 to 3/16 between pieces. Had to plane pieces to match.
