Stress!

Never had one take off like this! Went about 1 3/4" in each direction. Thankfully it was going away from the blade, kind of neat to watch.

Think I'll chuck this one in the burn bucket.  Laugh

Yeah. that's "interesting". 

But it depends what you are building. Lots of projects only need ~12" long pieces. So you can crosscut and joint that sort of board into submission. 

When you are pulling boards off the sawmill and they do that... Yeah they are going to be trouble. You can strap them down and get them dried straight, but then when you re-saw... that's what you get.

Anything moves like that when I mill goes in the slabwood pile.

Try to "cherry pick" my sawlogs, pith centered in both ends, few to no branches. Still, never know until one goes to build something with it.

In this case, I needed 55" long pieces, wasn't going to happen. Laugh

Had that happen some years ago with a piece of port orford cedar. Scared the bejeebers out of me.

Ha ha, I initially thought this had to do with covid stress . . . . my bride is driving me absolutely nuts, busting my gonads over every little thing.  I'd welcome dealing with misbehaving wood!!!  Going down to the shop to avoid the stress!!

Yeah, those can get your attention.  I've had some where the cut releases so much tension that a split runs from the cut to the other end of the board almost explosively fast.  And when you try to deal with the half pieces by jointing the split straight straight and cutting it again the same thing happens.  Firewood.

Yes. Exciting at times. I've been sawing away, and halfway down this piece decides to split the rest of the way. Pop......bang.......HEY!!!......ck'in for possible pants fill.....
