Dave,when I make the mark around the perimeter of the board after surfacing the first face, I make sure I use a cutting gauge and that it cuts pretty deep (relative to the tool being used – deep is 1/32” or so I guess). When I use this method, the wood will tell me when I an close by giving me more than a “fuzzy” edge; it will create a minute strip that is easily visible. As soon as I see that, I know I am about done.

Give it a shot and see if that helps you out. Good Luck!
