So many trade secrets and solutions to difficult problems throughout this episode, surrounding grain, leveling, and truing tabletops. It’s not too often you get to follow a whole tabletop this size being trued up with planes only, and Paul used a variety of planes to do this. These are methods Paul has developed alongside the use of his poor-man’s scrub planes in a converted #4 smoothing plane and #78 rebate plane for scrub-plane work. We switch to creating the hitherto unseen bracing method Paul developed for this dining table in preparation for the rarely used fox-wedging technique as a fixed anchor for the corners. We hope this is enjoyable for you.
