I have a couple boards of curly, spralted maple.
They are kind of warped, maybe 1/8 off.
I don’t have a planer or jointer, and haven’t learned to hand plane.
So, I was thinking of going to a local lumber place, and have them plane and joint it, make them s4s again.
I bought it as s4s, but it was slightly warped when I bought it, and after a couple months in my garage it may be a little worse now, not sure about that.
Making a box which is maybe 12” x 16”. Box will have mitered corners with dovetail keys.
So I was wondering if it would be worth it to plane and joint the boards?
A local place would charge $15 min since I didn’t buy the wood there, they are $10 min if you do buy the wood there.
Figured they might not be perfect, but they should be better after doing this.
I can live with loosing the thickness to square the pieces.
