Lapping it up

DMT Dia-Flat Diamond Coated Lapping Plate.  This is a worthwhile investment for flattening your waterstones, Arkansas stones or conventional stones.

Milling out Cardinia way with Glen Rundell using the TimberKing 2000 Band saw mill.  As the day went on, so did some Elm, Oak & Pear find its way into the Ute.
With a hefty weight now riding in the tray - Glen pointed out some previously cut Claret Ash, which had a hint of spalting & a little decay.
I took 5 boards (each 600mm x 1200mm x 35mm) thinking there might be something in it.

I decided to remove a small rotted section on all of the Claret Ash boards.  Here is a 230mm x 650mm section re-sawed to book match a 460mm wide panel.   I am very happy with this lot.

As for the rest - they sit patiently under the stairs for now.
