So far I've gotten most of the milling done. The lumber was really rough so I had to spend some time with the hand planes getting one side flat enough to send them through the planer. After a couple of sessions at the planer, and watching sooooo much nice lumber be turned into chips here's where I'm at now.
It turns out that one of the boards has some really nice striping to it. Not too often you see that in red oak. My next steps are to start practicing some dentil moulding and get the plywood. Hopefully I can find some good plywood that will compliment the real wood nicely.
