Had this table for about two years and it had sagged about 1/16th, have some pretty fine rabbets to route coming up in the next day or two so I decided it was time to take care of it once and for all. Got some rough sawn birch I had, milled it up nice and square and laminated it into 1.5 inch blocks (pic 2) once the glue was dry time for another quick pass through the jointer and planer and then built a quick frame (butt joints glue and screws, pic 3) sanded the ends of the protruding boards to give a slight camber to the table (maybe 1/64th) then screwed the top down and it was all sweet! The last 2 pics show my Veritas engineer’s straight edge on the center of the table and no gap!
