Well I haven’t written an update because it’s been too hot in my garage in So. Ca. I have a detached, 1938, garage without air condition. The heat never bothered me but as I get older it’s been getting to me.
Another problem I’m having is with the top of the TV stand. I mentioned before that I purchased 14’ of 6/4 African mahogany rough wood. I cut the wood into 3 pieces. (4’, 4’, and 6’)
Because it’s been about 100 degrees in my garage, I decided to take it to my local lumberyard and have the yard finish the 1/8” left to plane and use their jointer on the boards.
They told me they don’t have a jointer instead they use their table saw to do all their glue ups. Now that I have the boards home there’s no way I can glue up the board based on their table saw cut. The ends of the boards match up but the center part of the boards concave away from each other.
They planed the boards but when I got them home, one board is twisted. It wasn’t like this before and I planed most of the rough wood but since my planer is small I thought I’d have them take off the last 1/8”. Before taking the boards in they all were flat. They all came from the same one board but now I have one that’s twisted.
So I’m a little frustrated. I need to spend some time fixing everything but it’s too hot in the garage right now. All this well take some time so it will be awhile for the next update.
