I’ve read the Schwarz book, but I borrowed it from the library and have had to turn it back since. I’ve got a pretty good plan in my head of what to do but wanted to see if you had anything I could look at, just in case my mental planning had an unforseen snag.

I take it your top halves are 1ft wide each? That’s too big for my planer (it’s an old 10” Ryobi lunchbox deal). Maybe I’ll just have to do it in four smaller parts roughly 6” wide and then glue the quarters into halves. Then again, I’m still not sure if I want to do a split-top or a solid top.

Those were my thoughts exactly on using SYP instead of something more expensive. I could afford a maple top, though I’d much rather spend that money on tools. Schwarz recommended SYP in his book, so who am I to argue?

What size is the gap between your two halves?
