I am slowly progressing on my dining room table top, and it is time to begin planning the glue up.
The table top will be two book matched walnut slabs and some trim. By the time the dimensioning is complete I anticipate an inch and a half in thickness. I have done a lot of reading the last couple days and I have not found a description of how people are gluing up table tops with slabs. If I were making a standard table top (1 inch thick) I would dowel the pieces for glue up to avoid the inevitable cupping that happens to me.
For those of you who have made a thick table top with more than one thick slab, did you use biscuits or dowels to avoid cupping or is it not necessary with thicker glue ups?
Thanks for the help.
