This is the opening video in the series, making a linen cupboard and, throughout the instruction, Paul wanted to ensure the important details for wood selection and preparation paved the way to a successful project. The things he looks for in these areas are discussed throughout, as well as the methods he uses to reconcile discrepancies. We edge joint with the jack plane for a pristine joint line, and crosscut to knifewalls so that planing the ends ensures a dead square cut to a planed finish, ready for the joinery yet to come. We take the wood from the wood suppliers at machined levels to finished panels jointed, glued, and clamped in a matter of minutes.
