I am new to LJ and have only a couple years woodworking experience. I have learned a lot about using the right tools, but I still have a lot to learn about the right wood. I have recently built a farm table for a dining room
and the top has warped or cupped slightly. I used reclaimed long leaf pine 2×6 material that was recovered from an old factory floor. As I have been reading about how a balance in moisture content on both sides is necessary for a flat top I realized that I have made some mistakes. I planed one side of the wood and left the other for only a light sanding.
The bottom obviously absorbed more moisture because I planed it clean. It has been stained and sealed with Watco, but I am wondering if there is anything else I can do, before I attach the top to the base (probably with turn-buttons or metal fasteners)
