A friend gave me some raw cherry, and I was hoping that would be enough. It's not quite, though, so I bought a few small scrap pieces of cherry from a lumber yard. Scrap pieces are super cheap!
The new store-bought scrap is nicely planed to 3/4 in but the raw boards need to be planed. I'm borrowing a planer from the same friend who gave me the cherry. Until then, I'm just going to cut the longer boards down to 25 inches so they'll be ready for planing. The new material will be used for the legs, the old material used for the circular top.
