PLANE AND CUT YOUR WOOD PIECES
Cut and plane your wood pieces before you glue them together. We were so grateful that our friend and wood supplier will run our wood through his industrial planer.
Kevin used a lot of wood clamps and wood glue to adhere the pieces of wood together and let them dry sufficiently before moving on.
Once the glue had dried, we used a natural wood filler to fill all the holes and knots in the wood.
Once the filler was dry, it was time to give it a fantastic sanding with our Ryobi Orbit Sander and make all the wood pieces nice and even while also cleaning off any glue or filler remnants.
