I got back into my shop to complete the milling process on the lumber for these three projects. Today with the 6/4 maple I had to square the edge of both short boards.
Today I simply maximized the width of each board by ripping the boards on the table saw. The jointed edge goes up against the saw’s ripping fence and I determine which end of the board is the thinnest then I set the fence to skim cut that end . Later I will crosscut to an oversized length for each of the parts. Then I will rip it to near or final dimensions, based on the part in the project.
After this I will glue the panels for the nightstand tops and the back and sides, if needed.
I stickered the milled lumber in order to let them acclimate more to my shop. I do not believe I will get more moment, but this is just in case.
