Every project begins with wood that often has a variety of defects such as twist, cup, and bow. In this episode, Paul wants to walk everyone through the proven methods that have worked for hand toolists for centuries. Paul also uses the bandsaw to take care of at least half the heavier work as this machine takes off the bulk of the waste, and the wood needs only minimal planing before edge jointing and gluing up the panel. We then go on to true-up, plane, and scrape the tabletop ready for attaching to the table frame.
