On Saturday & Sunday I worked on re-purposing 2 bar stools into deck tables.
I used pine wood, tile adhesive, tile squares, and grout.
Everything went great until I took the tables inside because it was humid outdoors, to dry overnight. The next morning my tables had bowed like umbrellas.
I came to the conclusion that I put the grout on too soon, which cause the tile adhesive to not be able to dry properly on the wood and then the grout further wet the adhesive AND wood...so the weight of the tile caused the bowing of the damp wood?
Mike doesn't read this. You will have to put up with us who just read it and sometimes know what we are doing.
It was a cool idea put you should have sealed the wood first. Nothing like stating the obvious.
Will the weights work? Maybe. Maybe not. But if your alternative is to scrap it, what do you have to lose?
Can't you take the top off and start with a new piece of backing? Like fiber board.
