I did fore planing three boards with Veritas Scrub & BUS (tooth blade)
The tooth blade for Veritas Bevel-up Smoother is very good at Knots or difficult grains.
and I did smoothing and dimensioning with japanese plane.
For joint faces, I trimmed edges with stanley #7 and jointer fence.
without spline, I just glued up boards.
and, I strengthened joint with ” Tapered sliding dovetail ” beneath the boards.
( I will show you later. )
see you again :)
