I’m making a project that involves edge gluing some 2×4’s. They were rescued from a pallet and needed smoothing before I could glue them together. At first I tried my trusty jointing/tapering jig (above), but apparently either my saw blade is too dull, the clamps don’t hold well enough or the runner slops in the miter slot.
I kept seeing light between the edges.
So I gave it some thought. I have an old metal level that was left behind when we had our driveway paved. It’s straight. So I attached it to the wood with double sided carpet tape and ran it along the TS fence to skim off the edge. It worked and the piece is now glued up.
