    Otherwise just screw some 1x4's through the top for side mount slides.

    I tend to agree with Scott. I'd start by planing it and see if they checks remain or trim some off the end to see if they go all the way through.

    It sounds to me like the OP wants the top assembled for him, which I wouldn't expect most sawmills to want to get involved with.

    So which way did they cup?

    Wet wood will cup up (concave shape) if left on a flat bench as the exposed face will dry and shrink more than the bottom. The ends will often curl up as well (I...
