A general word on Table Tops
Response To:
Table top question ()

Bill Tindall, E.Tn.
Table tops are generally held tight against a frame. The proper fasteners will hold the top flat to this frame, yet allow for movement. I don't worry about how flat tops are to begin with or worry about keeping them flat under any condition. Pulling the top against a frame will keep it flat.

I always finish both sides. I don't have to cut costs like a factory. Finish slows moisture loss/gain, a lot by my testing. Finish on both sides lessens stress during humidity changes. Who doesn't strive for less stress?
