Re: Wierd wood physics...

Was the sheer clamp on the inside of the curve, or the outside? Wood changes it's dimensions according to moisture content, mostly across the grain, but a little along the grain too. Plywood is stable because most of the wood is trapped beween layers of glue, and cannot get wet or dry out. It might be that the sun dried out the top half ot the sheer clamp, causing it to warp, and it took the ply along with it.
