I am recently new to woodworking and am in the process of building a shaker style dining table out of some curly cherry. The boards I have run from 8″ to 10″ wide. What is the rule on wider boards in a table? I have heard to not use anything wider than around 5″, but I have seen tables with much wider. I really don’t want to saw the beautiful boards apart, but if it will prevent future warping I will. Oh yes the boards have been in my shop for many months are are stablilized and do not show any tendency to warp or bow. Any help would be greatley appreciated!
