A trip to the Lumber store took about three hours longer than expected. My wife and I needed to sift through nearly all the cedar in stock to get some that were workable. Almost wanted to give up and go to clear cedar or redwood. None-the-less, we prevailed and took the rough stock home.
To get the 2-1/8 thickness, I need to laminate a piece of 1×6 stock to a piece of 2×6 stock. I tried to select the pieces to compliment each other.
I cut all the stock to rough dimensions on my newly built miter station.
