00,003.50 / 10,000
So I spent a half hour planning the top of my workbench which had the cupping problems. I marked the high spots with my straight edge and focused on those until everything was pretty much flat. Some spots in the middle may have had a bit more than 1/16th of an inch. So now that I got it flat-ish I started planning across the entire width of my table. after going one pass I took the straight edge out again and it seems like one spot seemed to get an even worse of a cup? My bench is 30” wide and I cannot plane the entire width in one pass… so I have to go about half way across the table on one side then switch sides and do the same thing. Do you think that Is why I ended up making my cup a little bit worse in some areas? I don’t know… I have a #7 Stanley Jointer coming on Wednesday of this week. Maybe I will just wait to finish the bench until I have something with a longer sole.
