Squaring Stock

Figure 6-13. The seven steps and machines used to square up the six surfaces of a peice of stock.

Figure 6-13 shows the sequence of cuts if a board must be squared on all six sides. First straighten one surface using the jointer, then plane the second surface parallel to the first using the planer. Then joint one edge to straighten it with the jointer depth set to remove no more than 1/16" per pass. Place the jointed edge against the table saw rip fence. Rip to width plus 1/16". With the jointer set to remove 1/16" ,joint the sawn edge. Crosscut one end. Remove just enough to square up the end. Measure to length and crosscut the other end.
