« Part 1: Resaw work to start Part 2 of June 2021, leftover scraps of Ash, Box Project, maybe series Part 3: Started on the corners »

Time to flatten the boards a bit..

Clamped the narrower of the longer boards into the vise…run a jack plane across to knock down the high spots..

A “Before & After”....and then after the other half was done…

Not too bad?

Set #2?!!
Jointed the edges a bit..

There was a beltsander in use, as well…
Set #3 took a bit more work…

Decided to use the tablesaw, and trim this up as a 4-square,,,before I went too much farther..

Then each went in to the vise for a bit…

Finally, was able to line both up..

I still think this is better than driving down to Lowes, and buying their over-priced “Project Boards” besides, they don’t carry Ash.

Next up? Transform 4 of these into a box…that’s next time…

Stay tuned…
