« Part 1: CAD Part 2 of Making Sofa table by handtools series Part 3: Making stretcher »

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 :)
