I am building all new cabinets for our kitchen using PB melamine with maple-look surface. The face frame will be hard maple. The maple is S2S, so I need to cut it to width and finish the edges.
Will I be able to get a good edge by cutting it with the table saw and then sanding with a belt sander/random orbit sander/finishing sander? Or do I need to look for a used jointer on craigslist? I am concerned about the ends of the stiles where the rails meet it, these need to be exactly square to the top surface. Sometimes when sanding the edge you can make it slightly off 90 degrees. I have a 6" x 48" stationary belt sander also.
Also, I was going to replace my flex-drive craftsman table saw (I dropped the fence and broke a casting) with a sawstop contractor model but I can't afford it right now with the remodelling costs. In previous searches everyone recommeds the Delta T2 fence, but it looks unavailable now. What would be the fence of choice now for a craftsman saw?
