Location: Oklahoma

I am a Registered Nurse by profession, now semi-retired from working in a small town ER. I have strong perfectionist tendancies which can (and usually do) bog down progress which enables my procrastinating side. My husband, LJ Mudflap4869, is an experienced woodworker and has put up with me for >35 years. Almost as long as the Master Carpenter, in whose sandals I try to follow every day. God Bless.

-- God bless, Candy

First I planed a 1×8 x 24 (also 18, 34 in lght’s) to 5/8 thickness. Then ripped them to .030 over the finish size. Each size trivet required a different width.

Then I chose to finish them to size (width) on the planer. I wanted the pieces to be consistent for my glue up fixture and the planer gave the pieces a smooth finish that did not require any follow up sanding

I hope that answers your question.

Thanks for asking.

I have said many times when talking about my history with woodworking, and why I strive for the best I can do on each thing I make, that it is because my boss was a Jewish carpenter. Then I see if the get it.
