First Pass at Dimensioning the Oak for the Table Top
The wood has been sitting for over 6 months in the base. At this point in time, I want to start dimensioning the wood so that it is close to the final thickness of the tabletop. I want to get the newly exposed wood climatized to the basement to ensure that when I finally start building the tabletop, it will not cup or bow.
The first image shows the intended layout for the wood:
- Two leaves for the main table setup
- Middle Leaf for large groups of people. My wife, Lisa, wants the table to open to be square within the space of the Sun Room. I will have the table open to become wider rather than longer.

Here is a series of images from the initial dimensioning of the lumber. Once this is done, I will let the wood site for a couple of months to aclimate more.
