Yes, Loren has it right. Wood expands mostly across its width. So… when you attach wood with the grain running across the width of a table you have to do so very carefully. It should only be attached with special techniques such as breadboard ends, or screwed through slotted holes (without glue). An example would be a cross-grain cleat on a trestle table.

Putting it out in the sun won’t accomplish anything but a temporary change.

Good luck with it.
