Hello--I purchased a wooden table that is essentially a puzzle piece table with various planks of wood glued together. A few days after receiving this table, which looked very nice, cracks starting developing and continue to grow. Two pieces are separating from the table and are no longer even as they once were.
The maker claims that this is normal, and he attributes it to the change in climate between his shop and my place, which is in the NE. I personally don't think that it's normal to develop cracks like this in a matter of days when it's brand new. I notice new cracks or worsening ones everyday; the crack in the photo extends across the entire table, width wise. I feel like the craftsmanship is lacking, and they didn't build it to accommodate any wood movement whatsoever. Am I wrong here? Thanks for any help
