I had planned on then gluing a solid maple veneer face on the back to stabilize it. However, when the face dried overnight…... it bowed or "cupped" the backing...

    For the past few times I've used my Sawstop, I wasn't getting good square cuts. I checked to make sure the blade was square, measured, checked alignment etc. I finally discovered that the laminated wood on either side of the fence was coming undone. The glue was failing and the result was...
