I have a pair of rough sawn boards. These were cut offs from a longer plank. Thinking about a writing desk. So, these two will be milled down into the sides. A look at what I started with
Board number one. And
Board number two. The really bad edges were taken down to smooth with a cambered jack plane
It is a Red Plane because it is a Corsair #C-5 Jack plane. Got the edges down to almost cleaned off, time for something a little bigger?
Like a #6c Small Jointer. Boards were too short for the #8c. After the sloped edges were done
I flipped the boards over and smoothed the edge grain on the (almost) straight edge sides
Next “chapter” will be about those face sides. Still have a few nails to remove, before I even start that. Will hand saw to length as well.
