Don’t Let Moisture Ruin Your Wood Project 

There’s nothing like the satisfaction of finishing a project, stepping back, and observing your handiwork.

But imagine the disappointment if, weeks later, those beautiful oak floorboards start lifting upward. Or that cherry nightstand begins to warp into an ugly shape.


If you’ve ever experienced a cupped hardwood floor or a warped woodworking project, then you’ve run across the number-one culprit of wood damage: moisture. If not understood and accounted for, moisture can wreak havoc on your project, wasting your time and costing you money.

Thankfully, moisture damage doesn’t have to be your story. Here’s how.

Wood is a hygroscopic material, meaning it absorbs or releases moisture to match the surrounding air, known as the equilibrium moisture content (EMC). If the wood reaches the EMC of its location, it will remain stable—and damage-free.

The key, then, for anyone who works with wood is to understand the moisture content of the wood and work with it. That’s what this e-book will help you do.

We’ll cover:

  • What wood moisture content is and how to measure it
  • How moisture content affects wood
  • Other factors that play into wood movement
  • How to account for wood movement
  • Steps to prevent moisture damage in your project

You’ll learn exactly what you need to know about the effect of moisture and how to keep your projects beautiful for years to come.

No more worrying about moisture-related damage.

No more dealing with costly repairs. Or having to throw out a project altogether.

And no more wasting your time on damage that never had to occur in the first place.
