« Part 1: Getting to a glue up... Part 2 of Recycle a few scraps series no next part

Been distracted the last few days…..working on building a metal shed out in the backyard….about the only wood working THAT involved….

Was cutting a couple 2×6 x 10’ treated planks down to 81-1/2” lengths….to go with the other 2×6 x 10’ planks for the base of the shed….Disston D-112, 26”, 7ppi…1927 saw…

Managed to get the Cutting Board of of the clamps….sanded and planed smooth….a small can of varnish served as a template to mark out the curved corners,,,sand off the burn marks, add a bit of round over to the edges..

Sitting on the kitchen counter top…5/8” x 10-1/4” x 11”....should be enough?
Corner details?

maybe a “Hanger Hole”?

Some of the grain was a bit on the fancy side…

And a few “defects”?

Waiting on a bottle/can of Mineral Oil to soak this in….and that will be the finish….

Will post when that is done..( anyone want to see the shed when it is done?)

I would probably fill the defects with food grade epoxy if it bothered me enough. Which it probably wouldn’t….
