So, yesterday afternoon I started really working on the project. I had ~10BdFt of 8/4 White Oak on hand so I rough cut it to length on the table saw then started flattening the faces and jointing the edges. When it’s about 90 – 95 Degree’s(f) and 90% humidity it can make for quite a workout & weight loss program. I have the blanks for the aprons and legs ready to to re-saw on the Bandsaw. There is no way I would try that by hand with a rip saw; I’m not the twisted!
A flattening we will go, A flattening we will go…..
How square is that edge?
About that square!
Stop to cleanup, then keep going…..
Of course this is the VERY much shortened version of this effort I’ll update again as it all progresses. For now it’s just me and my planes (oh, and bandsaw).
