First, go to the tool section and grab an 8’ box level, the most expensive they have. Bring that with you to find the straightest boards. The poplar at the big box store is usually decent, but I still have to sift through and am lucky to find 25-50% of the straight enough.


I find the cheapest level from Horrible Freight to be just fine. Just verify the level set in the store ( bubble reads the same end for end) Fancy wood and brass does not make a better level.

Recently, the selection at least at our local HD look more like 2×4’s that have been left in the weather. More suitable for modern sculpture. Possiblly unstable weather leading to it. Sooooo. Lux head came yesterday for my new/used planer.
