Thanks for all of the tips everybody. I went and got 6 more strips of the curly maple , applied all the things as posted shaved the thickness down on my belt sander to around .080" and finished reducing with the scraper to .070" and they turned out really nice. Very pleased. Also I just realized , after all the ribs have been glued to the blocks, the top block which should sit 3/32" below the top side of the mould is 5/32" , when converting to /32" of an inch I got it wrong . How critical is this difference of 2/32". Or can I just build it up.
