How do you hand-toolers square large case sides with hand tools? I’m speaking of squaring the ends after you cut them to length with a hand saw. Mine never end up exactly square right off the saw.
Do you use a very large shooting board & hand plane? (I have a shooting board, but it’s not big enough for this job)
Do you clamp it upright at the front of your bench (clamps, or face vise) and just plane freehand down to a line?
-- I'm strictly hand-tool only...unless the power tool is faster and easier!
