Believe me I am sorely tempted. I DO have a jointer, but it’s only 4” wide ( Shopsmith ) I’d need a 12” jointer to do this…

On the up side, I’ve made a little progress. I was unable to straighten out the edge glued boards with the plane because they were so severely cupped, so I sawed them back into two pieces, and then they spent awhile in front of my propane shop heater. Eventually, I was able to get almost all of the cup out. I reglued them and have been flattening them with the No. 4 1/2 for the better part of an hour, but I’m a lot closer now than I was yesterday.
