If you paid someone to do that table top, get your money back and don’t ever have them build anything for you again. No one that understands wood movement would ever have done those recessed cross grain pieces. Even if the table didn’t cup, it would have split in short order due to seasonal changes. What a waste of a couple nice pieces of bookmatched pecan.

There’s lots more to being a good woodworker than the ability to glue and screw pieces of lumber together.
