Today was the day where our Oak Timber started the process of being regularised. The first process is to plane one edge straight, there are 90 pieces to process and 35 of them have been done.

Some of the Oak Timber Planed on One Edge

It was a case of learning the technique and making sure the finish edge is flat and straight.
Once this edge is made flat, we can set aside the 32 planks to slice in the circular saw to achieve the desired width of 90mm which are for the four pillars to form the corners of the Conservatory and 11 planks of 175mm wide to make sills for the garage windows.
The rest is for the Fascia which needs to be 150mm wide and some of them will need two pieces glued together, in order to get up to this width.
