Attaching The Shims.
|The shims were cut from some scrap mahogany.|
|I used epoxy, thickened with mahogany wood dust, to glue them on.|
|Held them in place with a lot of clamps for a day.|
|Waxed paper kept me from gluing the floor beam to my work surface.|
|A few passes across the planer/jointer to smooth the sides.|
|Next step will be to shape the bottom of the floor beam to its proper dimensions.|
