I posted some questions the other day about the table I’m building in the Design forum. See here.
I’ve bought red oak 1×6 boards for the glue up of the table top. I probably should have taken a little more time choosing the best boards, but I pretty much took all of the available stock of red oak 1×6s. The problem that I have is that some of them are slightly crooked (I think I’m using the correct word here – warp along the length of the edge of the wood). I don’t have a table saw or jointer so I can’t straighten them up that way. Can I straighten them up using a hand plane? If so, what type of plane should I get? Should I just glue them up with enough clamp pressure to bring the boards together? I’m not planning on using pocket screws as clamps during glue up, but will if that will help out.
