« Part 1: Planer Sled Construction Part 2 of Trestle Table for Dining Room series Part 3: Top progress »

Well, despite 60 MPH wind gusts, downed trees, and frequent showers, we braved the elements and used the planer sled to mill the lumber for the table today. I must say, the sled worked like a charm. The wood came out as flat as I can tell with my straight edge and winding sticks. Final thickness is 1.25” thick. Now on to edge jointing and glue up.

Jointed and planed(Jointed and planed)!

Looks pretty flat:
As flat as I can get them....(Edge view)!
