Thickness planing backs and tops

Prior plans of planing proceeding presently!

Two redwood tops close to final thickness at around .105”-.110”.  I’ll scrape more after the rosettes are installed.

One walnut back getting close and one more that hasn’t been started yet. Some areas of these were tough as I just avoided some knots.  Had to be really careful in spots.  Final thickness should be around .085”-.090”

Just planes and scrapers so far.  I’ll save any sanding for last possible minute and probably won’t sand the inside surfaces much if any.  Plenty of shavings, but it goes quickly… sometimes too quickly.  Run out is reversed on book matched pieces, as I’ve read, but luckily was able to account for and change methods as soon as I ran into it, which was only on the walnut.
