I purchased 14’ of 6/4 African mahogany rough wood. I cut the wood into 3 pieces. (4’, 4’, and 6’)
Because it’s been about 100 degrees in my garage, I decided to take it to my local lumberyard and have the yard finish the 1/8” left to plane and use their jointer on the boards.
They told me they don’t have a jointer instead they use their table saw to do all their glue ups. Now that I have the boards home there’s no way I can glue up the board based on their table saw cut.
They had also planed the boards but when I got them home, one board is twisted. It wasn't like this before and I planed most of the rough wood but since my planer is small I thought I’d have them take off the last 1/8”. Before taking the boards in they all were flat. They all came from the same one board but now I have one that’s twisted.
After time all three board were unacceptable to use for the top so I went to a different lumberyard and purchased some very nice 3/4 finished African mahogany. I looked at some genuine mahogany but the color was too different from the rest of my piece.

I made two different types of cauls. One type for my bar clamps and another for clamping the top together.
