I am building an oak table top at the moment.
The top is 32mm thick oak with mahogany inlay, the glue up of the top has gone fine.
However I applied the breadboard ends with draw boring technique leaving room for expansion at each end of the end piece .
One end is ok but the other end has a 1 to 2mm gap at each side running about 25 to 30mm in from each end.
I think I did not leave enough material on the tennon holes to pull the ends tight enough.
Now it is glued (in the centre, and a bit on the outside edge of the pegs) so cannot be removed, the gap closes when I put a clamp on it.
The question is what to do now ???
I could clamp it and put an extra peg in, but then it wont be able to move sede to side with fluctuations in humidity.
Could I get away with just gluing and clamping it, the top is 920mm wide. ??
Any suggestions welcome. Thanks.
