WORK­ING WITH ROUGH-SAWN BOARDS

The Family Handyman - - DIY ESSENTIALS -

Se­ri­ous wood­work­ers pre­fer to buy rough­sawn wood and then flat­ten and ma­chine those boards down to their de­sired thick­nesses and widths. The ad­van­tage is that the boards have warped to their fi­nal shape, so when they’re flat­tened, they stay per­fectly flat, straight and sta­ble. How­ever, that calls for two spe­cialty tools, a join­ter and a planer. To learn about this process, go to fam­i­ly­handy­man.com and search for “how to plane rough lum­ber.”
