Joel_B,

If the gap between two adjoining boards in a glue-up can be pulled tight together under hand pressure, the joints will likely fit tight together when edge glued.

The results off your table remind me of a spring joint; slightly narrower in the center (as determined along the length of the boards) than at the ends. Woodworkers who use the spring joint will take an otherwise straight edge and plane out a center hollow.

If interested, here is a description of the spring joint.
