thanks for all of the responses. After glue up, I typically keep clamped, in doors over night. After unclamping, its on to the drum sander. I sand both sides smooth and fllat with 80 grit paper. Usually I sand a bunch of boards at same time. The following day, I switch to 120 grit. Some, not all of the boards, appear to have been warped. When I run it through the sander the middle will have a high point (or low, depending on which side) compared to the corners. So now I am stuck sanding and making it flat all over again. This is very frustrating.

I have made sure my drum is level, the boards are perfectly flat after the 80 sand. For some reason a few of the boards don’t like me and are warping. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
