Not sure if this is the right place to post this or not, so here it goes.
I made two different glue up table tops. One is reclaimed cedar 1×6 ’s milled to 5” strips and the other is a maple and walnut top 4/4 thick with the strips appx. 2 – 2.5” wide. Overall dimensions are roughly 24” w x 36” L.
Here is the issue. After glue up, they are bowing up in the centers after being laid out flat 24 hours after glue up and removed from the clamps.
Here is the work flow for these tops. Mind you it had been no warmer than 47 deg Fahrenheit but has not dropped below 25 at night in the shop.
- Mill the blanks straight and cut to rough length
Its somewhere in this last step where the bowing occurs. Any ideas? Thanks
