I acquired several slabs of Cherry that I thought would make a nice cherry coffee table to replace the one I made a couple of years ago. These slabs are well out of true and need flattening – quite a workout!

The plane is a scrub plane –  the surface will be progressively brought down to smooth using:

Scrub, Jack, Jointer and finally smoothing plane

There is one long crack in the slab which will be tied together with at least one butterfly inlay

Stay tuned for updates.
