Maple Mania part 5

Now that the aprons are made I need to get the top section done. First I needed to flatten the glue up that was to be come the top. Even though it is made from two sections and each of those were flattened before gluing them up, the final glue up didn't turn out perfectly flat. And since it was now a 21" wide panel I couldn't run it through my planner.  I decided to use my hand plane and make it flat enough. I used my aluminum saw guide to check my progress.

Flattening the top section
Next the top section was sliced into 2.5" strips and was glued back together like a very large cutting board. 

Next I will flatten both sides and true up the sides.
