This video shows a table that was destroyed by wood movement. The repairs that were done over the years prevented the wood from moving. See what wood movement does and how to prevent issues when you’re working on furniture.

Let me know what you think. Scott Bennett

Hey Scott, great video on wood movement.
I have one question though… the bracket that allowed the wood expansion. Can you explain how that bracket is attached to allow it to pivot? I’ve never seen that before.
