Some lessons are learned the hard way. I bought a warped piece of Sapelle. I mean really warped. I thought that the little tiny pieces I needed would not be affected by a warped piece. Good lord was I ever wrong!
Here’s the sorrier news. I didn’t ask the store for a price break. I just said with a real confident aire “No problem at all! It will work just fine!” Every single gap in the top of the table was due to the fact that I could not make precise cuts to the severely warped wood. Boo Hiss!!
Folks – I forgot to be humble and just ask – Could you cut me a section of this straight board please?
I have 2 more issues to correct including a chip that came out of the table top. Of course – I can’t find the chip.
Overall I think the top is nice and I have had fewer problems with this top than the cocktail table top I did recently.
Thanks for looking!
-- Thanks for all the lessons!
