From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Case hardening describes lumber or timber that has been improperly kiln-dried. If dried too quickly, wood shrinks heavily on the surface, compressing its still damp interior. This results in unrelieved stress. Case hardened wood may warp considerably and potentially dangerously when the stress is released by sawing.
