Hey Lenny great topic you have going on here with plenty of neat ideas from fellow jocks. I would like to chime in on the view of B.White, I don’t have a jointer in my shop due to space issues as well and use my T.S. as my jointer for years. The first cut is done by using a straight edge taxi on the desired board which ride along the fence this will duplicate the straight edge to the opposite of the board. If the board has been plane flat two sided face tape works great if not you may have to tack the straightedge to the stock being edge . Ever since the early 80’s I’ve used ridge carbide TS 2000 blade on my saw which produces great glue joints. I also am a great advocate of the grip tight system for TS fence. These magnetic holder keep your board steady against the fence during ripping leaving a burn free edge on the stock which help vastly on producing the clean edge for gluing. For shorter piece I go to my reliable hand planes which allow me to listen to the radio or music in the shop. Final I use my Incra super system with the wonder fence which produce flawless glue joints as well, I use this for 3’ and less dimensions. These are just some more idea to toss around hope all is well and snow free my friend take care…Wilson
