So my thoughts are the same as above. Its fine as is, it will pull flat very well from the looks if it.

As for why it happened and continues to evolve – I’m guessing youre laying it flat on something as pictured… The top will then dry quicker as it has the air flow, and the bottom is sealed off by what youve layed it on- creating a side that has more moisture than the top. As the top dries it pulls the cup, you flip it over, and the same process starts moving it the other way.

Leave it on edge, so air hits both sides evenly… Preferably with some air movement – fan etc… And the problem will minimize, but it wont go away completely. Wood does what it wants to, no matter how careful you are.

-- I've quickly learned that being a woodworker isn't about making flawless work, rather it's fixing all the mistakes you made so that it appears flawless to others! Jay - FL
