Exciting hey, Just wait it will be.
The dimensions of this project is 18x12. I blanked the boards to 21 inches long so I can hold on to them, and ripped them it just over 5 inches wide. Once ripped I ran them through a jointer and refined the edges so they are dead on balls flat. Apply a liberal amount of Titebond II, ensure complete coverage and clamp.
More to come through the weekend. -Bill
