my gosh sorry guys its been awhile I forgot I started this thread!

Here we go.... I will try to get pictures sometime soon..

The green table exploded ha. The glue lines have now become wide cracks.  I say anywhere from 1/4 to 1/2".  The bread board ends still look like they did day one.  The table is till very functional and sturdy as hell though.  The owner (anticipating this) filled the cracks with black epoxy. It actually looks okay. I thought it was be awful and distracting but its not bad really. But yea shocked that the bread board ends remained stable.
I think he told me it started to split around 6 months or so.  (likely when the finish dissipated maybe?).

The second table with the seasoned table top is perfect. Glue lines still intact. It developed a small crack it the top near one of the wedged joints.  But only 2 inches or so long he didn't bother hiding it.

Those were the first and last two tables I ever built.

Sorry for the long delay

That's a pity, because with dry wood or a different design you have some nice solid stuff there.

But drying wood shrinks. The varnish would slow it down, maybe by 90%, which is why it took 6 months to dry and crack. If the green table had been allowed to float and shrink, it should have stayed intact, and just been an inch narrower now   ;)

Thanks for reporting back, it's a good demonstration of physics at work :)

Not surprised the breadboard ends continue to look fine. They won't shrink in length so stay intact, just the top boards abutting the end boards will shrink across their width and open up cracks that you tell about.
Look forward to the pics if you can get them posted.

Thanks for the update.  It is amazing how much wood can move and the power that it can generate.

I just wish I had half the talent and experience to build such a good looking table.  Even if it did crack, I'd still be proud of the way it did look....
