I was looking for an easy way to use some scraps that were floating around my shop, and this was the result. Bit on the smaller and thinner side at 13” by 9” by 1” but hey it was scraps!

Did hava bit of a bow to it after it was finished, all the wood had been in my heated shop for over a year. Any ideas how to prevent this in the future?

Nice size board, believe it or not-a very popular size
Bow ? Could be what I call cutting/ripping shock and that means one or more pieces had a bow before you glued up. I always check smaller/thinner pieces against a straight edge and cut the hump off with the table saw. Flip 180 and cut the convex, it might take several passes on each side but you can get it out then do your glue up

I thought i might have been due to the different varieties and densities of woods. The bow was along the 9” span and occurred a day or two after the finish was applied. Thanks for the input and positive comments
