Jointing / Planing needed

I’m a novice woodworker with a small shop in a one-car garage. I am making a farmhouse table and bought the slabs (rough sawn) for the table top from a local lumber yard thinking I’d just butt them together and hit them with a belt sander to smooth them somewhat. Now the wife says she wants a more finished look, meaning I need to have them planed and run through a jointer so I can join them. Do you know of a local woodworker or lumber yard or millworks business who could run these 10 - 12 boards through their planer and jointer for a reasonable fee? The boards vary in width and length, 8” - 12” wide and up to 10’ long

Many thanks In advance.

What kind of wood do you have and how thick are they? I'd suggest calling the Hardwood Store in Gibsonville and they may do it for you.

I can do that if you want to haul them to lexington
Thanks. the boards are new from a local (to the Triad) lumber yard, red oak with maybe a white oak board or two, nothing wider than 12”. I won’t be able to get back to the project for another week or two. Since I’m new to the forum, I’m not sure how to contact anyone without a general post.
