Re: wider panels, match planing, & spring joints

Gary Focht
I just built a Shaker desk for my son. Top is 60” long. First time jointing by hand. Used a Veritas low angle jack plane and match planed and spring jointed. Came out great but took a few trials for each joint to get spring joint where I liked it. Did not start out thinking spring joint, but that seemed easier than getting each board perfectly straight.

In short, you can do it.
