Well, I've been pretty busy with work stuff for the last couple of weeks. I left my macbook sitting on the dining room table. It's one of my prize posessions, solid walnut that I've refinished. Sadly, the heat from the laptop has caused two board joints to partially separate.

They're still joined at both ends, so I'm hopeful that this can self-heal. I removed the laptop and let the table cool down, but the gaps are still there. Now I have a slightly damp cloth on it, where it won't show it if water-stains. I hope the re-hydration will be enough to get the gaps to seal -- I've seen worse gaps fill in with just a little humidity and some patience.

If worse comes to worse, I'll re-glue them and clamp. The table is too nice to just let fall apart.
