ahhh...did you notice this ^ ...not shaping with planer or table saw
I did notice this, and i know about those processes but the fact that i'm using scrap solid hardwood means that i can't use those methods or don't have the right equipment. When i do get the time to purchase some baltic burch or maple veneer i will do one of the proper methods for giving concave or camber, but for now i will use what i got.
