Winding Sticks

Winding sticks are possibly the simplest tools in your tool chest, however, the job they do is invaluable. Place one stick either end of your board, sight down the centre and they will detect and exaggerate any wind (twist) in the board. If the top of both sticks are parallel to one another then your board is good, the contrasting hardwood inlays will help expose any wind.
