Tonight I got most of the lumber selected, planed, and just about ready to go for the end tables.
Here I am face jointing the boards to make one side dead-flat, this makes one side perfectly flat so the planer mimics that flat face to the other face, making a perfectly square board.
Here are the boards laid out in two groups of "similar" boards. This way the woodgrain will be matched up for each table.
Check back tomorrow to see how much further I have gotten.
