« Part 1: preparing the top Part 2 of A new kitchen table series Part 3: And curved breadboard ends »

Finally managed to get the fourth board jointed (the board on the left), as you can see from the pic this one had some tough grain to work with. The board was bowed up about 1/8” in the center, the grain runs in two different directions and the top end has the start of a very large knot that gave the plane a lot of trouble. I’ll send them all through the planer tomorrow, the shop shares a wall with the bedroom and the wife is sleeping so it’ll have to wait till then; after which I can start jointing the sides to get then ready for fitting together.

That sure does look like difficult grain to run through a planer.
