It may have indeed continued to dry after you did the glue up. If you had it a long time with one face on the bench top it may have dried more on the face up side than the bottom.
Quote from: drobertson on February 13, 2015, 06:27:18 PMthanks guys! I've done bout what has been mentioned, the main issue is I dried it without proper stickering. The planer did not take out the slight bow, so a few of the panels had a bow, maybe 1/8" or lil better. I did get the jointer squared up, but man you guys that do this on a regular basis, hats off to you! brutal, but fun, thanks again,
Quote from: beenthere on February 13, 2015, 10:01:40 PMThis bow is one reason mentioned for jointing a face first, before running through the planer. Now, is there enough bow to make the rockers out of them... ripping in strips and laminating them together? ;) just jokin.. but the baby will enjoy the cradle regardless..
Quote from: drobertson on February 13, 2015, 08:40:35 PMNot sure if I read this right, but the boards are bowed, each end high and low in the middle if that makes any sense. the planer makes an even thickness, the board just has a natural bow that does not lay flat, which I think is due to a curve in the board that has dried that way. the planner flattens but the board returns with a bow. edge wise they are parallel and the glue joints solid.

Quote from: red oaks lumber on February 14, 2015, 06:06:04 PMi just glued up a 25"x72" bench top. started flat ended flat i never needed a jointer just used my planer like i always use making furniture. the old saying you can't make a silk purse using a sows ear. same with using crooked or bowed wood and expect good results. seems kinda funny how it all comes back to proper stickering of lumber.
