You all drive me nuts here with your wood movement! Table tops move ect. If using kilned dried lumber, seal the end grain where most moister comes in to affect wood width changes, live in a house with AC, and even open windows in the fall and spring, there is nothing to worry about. Movement specs is for unfinished wood, in an open environment, and they dont tell you there range of humidity it goes through.
I have never had a problem with table tops.
Store bought table tops are fasten tightly to the frames/skirts.
How many here have wooden topped work benches in a garage, or shop that is not environmentally controlled?
They are mounted tightly to the base, any issues?????
Get passed this wood movement. It is boring and redundant to hear it here to every Newbie building a table. It is useless info. Unless that is all you can say, and useless/inaccurate info. Even raw wood for a pick nick table out doors in the rain does not move that much as you Nay Sayers tend to Preach here.
