I have a piece of s2s 1" mahogany 40"" x 11"
It has a slight wind to it. if I lay it on the convex side and hold down 1
end - the other is no more than 1/2' off the table. The other way using a
straightedge about 3/8" is the largest gap. I was thinking I could use this
for the legs of my project. If I can't easily locate 6/4 mahogany locally
I'd rip and glue up the pieces.
Considering the slioght wind - do I need top true this board first or could
I get away with rip and glue then sand/plane/shape, etc to size.
If I do need to true it - what's the best way to tackle it - I have a planer
and a router table, bandsaw, tablesaw but no jointer. I can joint the edge
using the router table but that's about it. I do have several hand planes
but I've never tried to remove a wind before.
Any suggestions will help.
Of course, I may be wrong, I thought I was wrong once but I was mistaken.
