« Part 2: Planing the lower carcass stock Part 3 of Wormy Chestnut Shaker Linen Press series Part 4: Almost done with the panels »

Got started gluing up panels for the lower carcass. The grain is VERY busy and much of the wood is in rough shape. I handplaned one panel until flat and it measured 11/16”, so the rest of the boards go back through the planer at this setting.

When you don’t have a proper bench yet, you make do:)

I power jointed everything, then sprung it with the jointer plane & glued up:

Flatten with the jointer:

Smooth with smoothers/scrape with scrapers

You know, I think that wormy chestnut may have had an insect problem or something. :-)

They came out great Al. Nice job on the jointing and flattening. I can’t see any gaps from here.

Wow – that is looking good.
And you are running through the full spectrum of planes. Good for you. I don’t have the nerve to do that.
