Well it looks like I spoke to soon when I said last months glue up occured without any problems; the boards ended up in reverse order from what I intended. I guess that is more of a planning error than a glue up error but the net effect is the same.
I’m using boards of variable width so the plan had been to make the outside edges of the table the wide boards and the narrow boards in the middle. Unfortunately this is how it currently is.
My first thought to correct it was to level the backside and flip one of them over, unfortunately this results in a book matched look that emphisies the color variation in the boards.
All of my careful layout work for naught. This could have been avoided if I had glued the top up as one piece or if I had a larger shop space or if I had killed all of the boards and re-done the layout. Live and learn.
Tomorrow I’ll set up some saw horses in the sun and we shall see which looks better.
