Table top question ()

Bill Tindall, E.Tn.
This question came up countless times from customers that bought lumber from us. My repose was always to same.....This 16" wide board has been in the lumber rack to past year and it has stayed flat. Why would you expect it to behave different when it becomes a table top. My follow up is describing the 20" wide walnut board that makes the side of some tall piece of storage furniture at the Shaker community near Lexington , KY.

I don't know where the notion began that wide boards would be unstable but it is bogus.
