I have my first project done, fireplace mantel.
Added a few new tools.
Thickness planer and router.
We planned down some boards to 7/8” thickness.
I clamped in pairs and used my #8 plane to match the ends.
We glued enough boards for the top and a bottom shelf.
Now I need to figure out how to flatten the tops of the joined boards.
Need to read on on this.
I am assuming #8 plane again.
I am thinking of glueing up 3×3 legs.
Not sure about the apron or how to attach the bottom shelf.
