So I decided to use it on this project and it'll be nice to make something from wood. That was pretty much harvested milled and now finished all in-house. So I'm just cross-cutting it with the 10-inch worm drive saw. This is a soft Squatch, it's from skill and it's pretty good at handling the large crosscuts and rips on material like this.
It's about 2 and 3/4 thick and it's gonna be plane down and cut and it'll wind up being about two and a half to two and 3/8 inches thick finished once everything's done so I cross cut it at 36 inches and then ripped it roughly. In half before we bring it over to the table, saw and dimension there gonna, take it over to the planer and bring down those saw milling marks and make them nice and smooth.
This is a 15-inch 220-volt planer, and this does a great job of hogging down material and the dust collection actually works really great on it, which is nice. So I'm gonna run these through just taking light passes and eventually bringing them down to a thickness of. Like I said about two and a half, I always make sure that that last pass is done on both of the board so that I know that they're.
Both the same thickness now with them both plane down, I want to debark them, so I'm using just a little carpenters hatchet here, and this does a really great job at chipping bark off, especially this stuff, which basically peeled off an almost 1 piece, which is really nice and then I'll go back and I'll sand that sort of spongy live edge. Later on, I had decided on the finished width for the shelves, but since I had the live edge, I sort of wield it. So I decided to rip off of the ripped section that I had done with the skill saw.
