I am building a woodworking bench. I purchased about a year ago a laminated ash top for it. The top has “cupped” slightly in the interim, so now, I am going to have to level it before proceeding with my workbench. It has bowed up slightly, < 1/8 inch, across its width.
The top is 72” L X 30” W X 2 3/4” D. It weighs a lot! Anyway, I am thinking the only way I can level it is with a plane. I am wondering what sort of plane would be best for this, and if anyone has any tips on how to go about it? The top is up on saw horses now. I have a #4, #5, #7 and #8 planes. How best to advance this?
