You can imagine how the laminated sides responded to this, I should have taken a before and after photo.
With a bit of re-setting its looking healthy again, but to witness the timber shrink so suddenly makes your stomach turn a bit. RH is still below 60% so its stable for building for some time yet.
Apart from that, its an enjoyable build so far.


Are you reffering to the Big Bird wood sides being laminated to teh 1/64" ply doubler ? if so, what glue did you use, sounds like water based wood glue.
