In reply to warped studs by tom on November 3rd, 2000 08:22 AM [Go to top of thread]

Most studs are bowed. If they are all bowed the same way then it isn't noticable over 7 or 8 feet and this is all quite normal. If they all aren't bowed the same way then it is possible that you could see some waves in your finished wall, but it is still not that likely unless you looked really hard for it. If you think it will be noticable, then remove some of them and spin them so they are all bowed the same way. A good way to see how bad it is is to take a long straightedge or a straight stud and hold it against the wall horizontally to see how the studs line up on the plane. As long as you don't have any really bad hockey stick studs you are probably ok, just rock it...
