Additions:
"">>After the plate has dried, check the bottom side with your straightedge. If the bottom is uneven, you will have to plane it perfectly flat so that the ribs are in full contact with it.
~1) Make the bottom perfectly flat using your long plane. Be careful of the wood grain. The two billets' grain runs in opposite directions so you will need to keep flipping the plate frequently to go with the grain to avoid tearing. (tearing is more likely with highly flamed maple) Tilting the plane sideways a little or going accross the grain should help too. If nothing helps, use the scraper blade.
~1) Take the ribs and put them on the front plate. Align the centerline on the ribs with that on the front plate. See **Fig. 1.**
