Let me discribe what I glued up, in the center I have a 2” wenge center, I have 1” wide maple coming straight off each paralel side, (pinweel style) then I have 4 pieces of Claro Walnut squared up and glued to the maple. Total size is 23” wide, 27” long 1” thick with the intent to surface it just a little to give me smooth lines…. well that’s all jacked up now
Well got it all glued up and now it’s warped. I am afriad if I take it and get the warp planed out that I will end up with a table top 1/2” thick.
What I knew before I started gluing was that one of the walnut pieces was slightly warped only about a 1/4” from one end to the other (15”). I thought I would be able to knock that out but no joy…
So here’s my thoughts, cut it all back apart, take the walnut and surface it flat. Then reglue everything again. The maple is no big deal to loose in this process. The Claro walnut on the otherhand is a big deal.
The table was supposed to have a natural edge on it. but I might just fram the entire thing with maple if the walnut gets to thin.
Any ideas on how to improve my situation?
