Houston, we have a problem. I thickness planed this cherry a few weeks ago and put it under my bed till I had the chance to turn them into a table top. Well I now notice that a couple of boards have slightly bowed. Here is a pic of one bowed board against a straight board and then me applying slight pressure in the middle to flush the two boards together. I’m afraid that after I edge glue them the one board will eventually bow back.
I was thinking that I could use a sliding dovetail across the middle of the boards to act as a straightener to resist the bowing but I’d hate for it not to work and for it to just make the problem worse.
What do y’all think? Sorry if the pics are sideways I am having to upload them from my phone.
