The best thing to do with a heavily twisted board is to put it back on the rack at the lumber yard and find a flatter one. This isn't always possible though and into every shop some wicked twist will come. The fastest way to remove twist is with a saw and just cutting it off. But diagnosing exactly where the twist is and how bad can sometimes be like chasing your tail.
In this lesson I show you how to systematically break down the board and diagnose the twist to build a strategy for removing the minimal amount of wood to eliminate even the worst twist.
