Late thoughts …

1. sanding the top to remove the fresh coat of shellac, let the top re-acclimate to current weather and humidity (quite humid over this past week),
Then after about a week, shellac both sides.

2. Attach angle iron to the underside, rather than wood strips. Less likely to stretch (though I don’t know how much wood actually stretches under tension).
