The other thing was how the mod is stored. If it was in sunlight, it might also account for the warp. But wood, it does it's own thing.

I wouldn't exclude the possibility, the whole box has deteriorated it a bit (not only cover)

I blame the crazy grain. There's model making timber that's much finer grained and dimensionally stable from the onset, but it would probably look boring to some people. :P

You have some points there...:) I don't know much about stab wood only that it made by injection of resin in vacuum. Normally that should prevent it from too much moving (or not?)
But I have to repeat, this VGME thing here is not stab wood. When I see rain falling upwards, I'll be ready to think it, not before.

I think you're right. I have knife handles that you could beat with a hammer and they would still look like new.

Have a mass of wood instead of an empty box with thin walls is always better for the hammer ;)

I'd like to ask the question again: is it possible to colour/stain/tint already stabilised wood?

Yeah, it should be okay to have a clear undercoat of colour.

You can paint an undercoat of clear colour stain over any wood, stab. or not. It won't be a true stain though, it will be over an existing coat of something that seals the timber already. There is a pigment that's added to a clear coat.

Wow sorry my wuwei, that's really something...at least not for me. =)
I'd really like to know, at some point, from those who clear coat, paint their gears - an object that spends a lot of time in the hands, if they don't become after just a couple of months something looking like a battered cat.
Didn't even know that one has to clear coat stab wood. I thought resin would make the job!
I thought stain would mean something that is absorbed in the wood, so wouldn't wear off. (can fad tho as tints)
I'm personally rather for feeding the wood (linen oil) which would also help for preventing it from too much moving. And wax as a finish. (well, I'm testing it right now)
Industrials use varnish which are extremely durable (quasi plastifies the wood) but where to get that (for those who want)
