Hi guys! I'm building some stair rails and I bought two clear fir 2x4x16'. However, they both have a bit of a bow to them. I think it's called crown. So, how would you go about making them straight and staying straight. I didn't think it mattered that much when I bought them because I figured they would bend a bit. When I placed the 2x4 on the steel posts it was quite a bit of difference. Being clear fir, I guess it's a bit dryer and doesn't have much give. I rigged up some clamps to try to bend the 2x4's. What is the proper way to get them straight without waiting decades?
