Looking good John. Thanks for the update.

I run my little business  alone. If I'm sick or otherwise occupied things don't get done.

As is often said, "Life is what happens while you are making other plans"'

FYI, the thinnest DAR timber we can get at stores here is 8mm, but in 5" widths it only gets made in 19mm, so MDF has to be the material of (no) choice for me for projects like this.  Unless one has a thicknesser and bandsaw for resawing and dressing, and the capital cost is a bit steep for a few bits of wood.

Wombat,

I myself also doesn´t have a thicknesser.

I cut planks in half (my proxxon goes max 4 cm) so I can cut 8 cm planks. When needed a ´wider´ plank, say 10 cm, I cut the remining 2 cm by hand (small japanese saw) or scrollsaw. The remaining ridge, I then plane.

When I need bigger sizes, I ask my woodsupplier to cut the plank in half for me. He has a prof-saw which can go up to 15 cm (exactly how much, I don´t know), I do know that planks of 30 cm can but cut to the thickness I want 😉.

Therefore I always get the right size/thickness of any type wood of my choise.

John,

I wrote this 'reaction' earlier (more ample) but cannot find it anymore. Did I do something wrong?
