Except that lumber drys and the fiber become less flexible, as I said "in time" resulting in a hardened inflexible member.

Besides which, there is already a platform bridging the 2x10's, so the OSB would not be necessary, just a few screws.

KISS principal.

I give you some time to "think that thru" so you can rephrase it, in context.

Thanks for the suggestions. I'll give the turning them over and screwing down my plywood a try (I just have the plywood lying over the 2x10s as I wanted to test it out as proof of concept before screwing anything down).

I tried letting the 2x10s dry out before using (4 weeks) but they could've still been a lil damp when I laid them out.

I'll report back to give an update.

The process can take years depending upon the relative humidity.

What are you talking about. Should this man unload and dismantle the shelf every so many month and turn the lumber for years

Remember, you're the one with all the experience, according to you, so, why would the aging of lumber be such a mystery, unless of course..........

I think the OP wanted a storage shelf not a full time job flipping boards.
