I built this farmhouse table for my daughter who in turn did the finishing of it. It was made from pine and the table edging is all 2×4 doubled up. The slats are 1×6’s 28”long. The table is huge.
The outside edge is glued and screwed as well as the outer slats all around. The inside slats are only pocket screwed on sides and ends.
Problem is 2 boards look like they have shrunk width wise and have left gaps on both sides. The one picture with the red circles shows 2 of the pocket holes being pulled away. I’m planning on taking those 2 boards out and replacing them if at all possible or at least cutting strips to fill the gaps( would rather not)
Any ideas why this happened?? The edges and other end of the table are not showing any separations at all so it is confusing to say the least.
