Hi everyone. I need some help with a coffee table that I am making. I am new to this as this is only my second table I have made.

I am making a round coffee table out of 4 1X10 planks of cherry. The idea is to have it look like one piece of wood. I got really solid butt joints with glue and it was looking pretty good. I got the circle cut with no problems.

The next day I went out and it was all warped and not sitting straight on the table in garage. Not sure how to fix the problem or make sure this doesn’t happen in the future.

Any help would be great and thanks in advance.

Have your say...
