In my case I should have probably checked for flatness a little better after I face jointed the boards.

They seemed to be flat to each other, but I was admiring how edge jointing made the two pieces fit nearly seamlessly that I didn’t pay as much attention as I should have.

Sure showed up immediately when I put the clamps on and started wiping squeeze out.

I’m also learning I need to index the sides that are jointed so I don’t loose track of opposing sides for planer and TS.

This process was not on rough lumber but on some wood that was fairly straight and I had already thickness planed a little oversize before beginning the jointing.
