Made for a friend/co-worker for their new house. built from rustic hickory. may not look it, but holy smokes its heavy. 76X40X30. Learned why you don’t run one long deep mortis and tenon full length of the table. first built the table had one continuos 1.5” deep blind mortis for each bread board end, for wood movement. Then doweled with slots from underneath. Well because of this the mortis wood curled up because nothing would keep it from cupping. So now I know after fixing it with gaps between solid and mortised wood, not to do that again!
hope this makes sense and keeps someone else from making the same mistake:)
