if I have a choice would always use quarter sawn wood.
I should've clarified. I built each core individual… 1/4 sawn work best for this method

heat differential do not working too well or consistently for me. Even when heating almost exclusively from the bottom I'm getting no more than couple millimeters of camber in zero camber mold… Maybe I shouldn't put carbon fiber next to the core.

wood sidewall or sidewallless

I've been using wood sidewall. Every time making the core I'm questioning is it necessary...extra steps ... cut and glue sidewall.... extra template to make. It's a lot of work and I'm not sure if it necessary.
The only benefit I can see is sidewall is one single piece of wood

you don't need to build controller. Line voltage thermostat can be used to control blankets… I'm using those without any problems.
Simple to set up, simple wiring… Inexpensive. Can be wired for 110 or 220… 16 A in 110; 8 A in 220. Comes with T.C. ..... What else can I say practically plug-and-play
