I am building a coffee table for my wife and she wants the top to be 3 wide boards (the top will be 32” wide). I am using 2×12 SYP joist for the top (it is the look she wanted).
After planing 1/8” off each side of the boards and letting them sit in the shop over night they cupped. I brought them back in the house where they have been stickered for months and the moisture meter had moisture content down to 7-8%.
Would it make sense to add battons (even if temporary) at glue up to prevent them from cupping again if I plane out the new cup. I figured I would do breadboards and possible a couple of battons for the final piece.
My wife really wants the wide boards and as patient as she has been on getting the shop set up I would really like to deliver. Are there better alternatives?
Thanks in advance.
