So first come the fun part.
Picking up the lumber at the local shop, and stapped it in as my co-pilot
Next I rough marked all the lumber to try to minimize waste, and cut if all down to rough size.
I took all those pieces straightened out the size and planed all the pieces to thickness. This was also the the reason I got a thickness planer, which I have to say, is an amazing addition to the shop. Now I’ve got nice little piles of squared of lumber.
