I ordered not so long ago some PG medium basswood and some medium walnut to make a checker board. But here is the thing : the basswood and walnut are not of the same thickness. In addition, the woods are not of the same thickness throughout the plank. Which means when I put my pieces together, not one piece is flush with the other. It’s a not big difference in thickness but it’s enough to stop that project.
I get that medium hardwoods can be of different thickness (though this is surprising), but not on a same plank. Have I known this, I would not have ordered hardwood.
Has anyone encountered this problem?
This is Basswood (in mm):
This is walnut (in mm):
As I mentionned, it’s not much. But just enough to keep from making a checker board.
