For the table top I am using two boards about 8" wide each. First I match the grain in the best way possible, and then I joint the edges and glue them together. Then I flatten and smooth one side, and just flatten the other side. This side will be the bottom. In order to lighten the look of the top, I put some bevels in. They are marked out with pencil, and then just planed to the line. Start with the two sides that are cross grain first.
