It was well aged wood. The place I bought it from specialized in
rare woods and all were kiln dried and aged. This particular piece
was also selected from a considerable number of pieces for its grain
configuration and lack of warping in the warehouse.
The moisture from the water would probably have a greater effect on
warping the more aged the wood was since the aged wood would be
drier. I was surprised to see how much the heat caused warping too.
The basic point remains. Booze boxes don't work as well as barrels
do. In fact, they don't work at all. I wish I could report
