Is this the top or the underside of the table. A broader picture may be helpful in determining what is wrong with the table. At first glance in would appear that the center two boards have dried out and shrunk away from the angle cut pieces (wood will swell and shrink across the grain with increases and decreases in humidity; this is referred to as ‘wood movement’. Wood does not move as much along the grain with the same humidity changes). It looks like the table is from a pine or other softwood. Would you know what type of wood it is?
