Greetings, Im putting together a neck for an upcoming build and would like some advice. For the neck Im going with a 5 piece Hard maple, cherry accent, White Wenge center, cherry, maple. For the maple I purchased a 4/4 board and ripped it down into 2 pieces. Now Im wondering which way to orient the pieces to be structurly the best. After ripping the Maple it did develop some bow that I think/hoping will cancel itself off with the lams. Here are 2 pics I snapped. Which is the correct way for the Maple? Pic 1: The grain run toward the center. Pic 2: The grain runs away. It seemed like the bow was all but reduced when set up with option 2. Not sure if that makes sense.
