Jarmo, how were the growth rings oriented? I had this happen in a table and didn’t understand it until Rich posted an article by Tage Frid. In my case, I had ripped a flatsawn board into strips and flipped it to make a quartersawn panel but two of the boards I joined barkside to pithside and just as Tage predicted, they expand/contract at different rates and sometimes there is a seam I can catch with a fingernail. Even if you didn’t rip and flip, it could possibly happen if you have rift or quartersawn joined to flatsawn.
