A board that has curvature from end-to-end edge-wise from a straight line is crooked.
deviation from a flat plane of the narrow face, end-to-end. Caused by a change in moisture after sawing and by fibers not parallel to the surfaces. Makes wood unsuitable for framing.
Distortion of a piece of lumber in which there is a deviation in a direction perpendicular to the edge from a straight line from end to end in a piece.
