Good question:
Quarter sawing is a HUGE waste of wood and very time consuming.

You actually end up with several quarter sawn pieces ( radial grain ) sawing in the plain saw method per log anyway, which gives you primarily tangential grain.. you could always pick to use only those pieces if desired.

I was asked why I alternated "Crowns" I went on to explain what I was actually doing and why...and also why it probably wasn't important in this case any way.

But you are 100% correct that would and does cure 99% of the issue with cupping.

I don't as of yet own my own saw neighbor does...Its all I can do to get him to cut for me about once a year let alone get real demanding about it..

Relationships are everything to me..everything else in life are just tools to enhance them.

The purchase price of a boat is just the admittance fee to the still have to spend money on the court one with something going for her with pleasing and desirable character traits others desire as well... or you could find yourself in a disillusioned relationship contemplating an expensive divorce.
