    For the top, one way to eliminate a lot of the jointing & planing is to use sections of glued laminated beams (glulam). A large construction supply outfit may have offcuts you could use.FWIW, a jointer produces one flat face on the board and an edge at 90 degrees to it. Running that through a planer gives two parallel faces on the finished board. If there is any initial twist in the board, skipping the jointing step will give parallel faces on a board that remains twisted.

    Pruning Tomatoes For Maximum Yield

    You could try the same trick as when planting the initial plant in spring.Make a small trench 5-7 cm deep (2-3 inches), and lay the roots and up to a 30 cm/12-in of the stem in it, then cover with soil and water. The buried part of the stem sprouts new roots and IME improves yield. In the spring, the plant will develop faster for being near the surface (in soil warmer than 6C/42F, or whatever that magic temp for beginning to grow is).

    You could try the same trick as when planting the initial plant in spring.Make a small trench 2-3 in deep, and lay the roots and up to a foot of the stem in it, then cover with soil and water. The buried part of the stem sprouts new roots and IME improves yield. In the spring, the plant will develop faster for being near the surface (in soil warmer than 42F or whatever that magic temp for beginning to grow is).
