We process three rough-sawn sections of wood, 8″ or so wide, to laminate one of three tabletops. Paul wanted this episode to walk you through exactly what it takes to true up the boards and prepare them using a system of different hand planes. This is especially for those of you who do not own a bandsaw to take off the bulk of the waste. We go from truing up the three-piece tops, to edge jointing the meeting edges for a seamless joint line and follow a systematic process for gluing up the pieces.
