The first set I didn’t throw them in the planer. I just took three of those shorter boards and cut them down for a table (also plans from JSB). The legs got cut down to 1.5” squares. Now they look nice and shiny… So I threw the rest of the pieces in the planer as well so they would all match :). Also… So I didn’t have to do much sanding.

These boards have no nails or staples in them. They are from a barge making company. They recieve large sheets of metal and these are the spacers. They have black smudges all over them from this. Took a sander to the chair I made and it comes off pretty easy (but with the planer I don’t have to sand as much)

Just came in to grab a drink and put the kiddos to bed. Tomorrow is their first day of school. Then life can return to normal and I can get more shop time in :)

Thanks for the comments.
