  • Q: Trouble joining boards for a table top

    I am joining 7 lengths of 6" wide walnut for a table top.  I am using dowels to keep the boards in line - just like the side table in season 3.  When I joined the first 3 boards they are cupping to form a "U" shape.  Will this go away once I do the glue up?  Am I doing something wrong? 

     

    I didn't joint or plane the boards myself.  I am wondering if the boards aren't straight and that is what is causing the issue.  The boads are flush up against one another but the whole collection of boards is warping?
