I’ve decided to go with white maple and brown maple for the wood. I’ll use the white maple for door/drawer fronts, side panels, shelf, and top. I’ll use the brown maple for the legs and rails. I’ll have to face glue a few pieces of the brown maple to get my 2” x 2” legs but that’s no big deal.
I picked up the white maple today from the lumberyard and it’s surfaced on 2 sides (the faces). But there are still some waves from the cutterhead that I can see and slightly feel. Do I need to plane these down some more or can I surface the other 2 sides and then sand the faces when I get to that point?
I’m still waiting to get the brown maple and the plywood for the side panels. They said that would take about 10 days to get. So now I either need to tune up my hand plane that I got for christmas or start rough cutting and running the boards through the jointer.
