My neighbor asked me about a table he has with three leafs in it. I guess the leafs have bowed so they don't fit good in the table. Anyway to fix this other then making new ones? I haven't gone over there to take a look so I don't know how bowed they are.

Any help I can give this guy?

You do not know anything about the table or leafs. You are his neighbor.

How do you expect people on the internet to have any answers.

Go look at the table. What kind of wood. What size the leafs; How much bow. Pictures? etc., etc.

Information needed.

If he could live with the leaves a little smaller you could rip the leaves into more narrow pieces and reglue them. If the underside of the leaves were left raw wood that might have contributed to the warp. If that is the case you might set the leaves in a sunny location with the underside up and dry that side of the wood out assuming that side is the side with the crown on it. Once you get it flat you could seal the underside with a finish to prevent it from warping again.
