Flat as a pancake

Ahhh, this is what I like to see, a flat bench. I’m using two levels as winding sticks; yellow in front and orange at back. I had hoped to use a drum sander to flatten, and smooth, the top and bottom but that fell through so I ran one half through my lunch box planer and used hand planes when the rest was glued on.

Look at that grain pattern – I think I’ve violated every slab glue up guide line. There are some wildly differing growth rates (I think it is all fir except for the oak dog strip).
