Re: New FrankenRG Project

Not a hand planer, no. In this instance, 'planing' the top was a 1x4, 2 clamps, and a ball bearing router bit. My shop hand isn't so 'smooth' with the router yet, hence the diagonal gouges. I'm hoping those will sand out before we glue the top on. I'm also planning to use some nice thick 2 tonne epoxy to gap fill any problem spots. This is a fun project, for sure.
