The work goes quickly using winding sticks to guide the planing effort.

By planing the high spots across the grain and frequently sighting over the winding sticks, the work progresses.

Here’s the slab with the remaining high spots highlighted with white chalk. There’s also one deep cup just below the center – that area that looks a little yellow.

Almost done! This was about three hours of work. No noise, no dust, no safety issues – and I can listen to the stereo. With one side dead flat, I can run the slab through my planer to get the second side flat and parallel with the first side.

This side is now flat except for a small cup which will come out with machine planing.
