I’m working on a solid walnut dining table and had a question about my planned order. Basically, I’m doing the table top first so that I can construct the base to the correct size (in case anything doesn’t go as planned with the table top). The table top is 8 or 9 walnut boards edge glued together to form a 40” wide surface.
So my question is, is the table top going to stay flat during the 2-3 weeks that it takes me to finish the base? Based on some reading I’ve done, it seems that once it’s on the base, being secured to the base will keep it flat. But what about before its on the base?
Or should I get sorta close on the base before I finish the table top to reduce the length of time the top sits without being attached to the base?
Thanks for any advice!
