how to cut multiple wide "boards" correctly?
Ok, I'm new. Really new. I have a router and router table, miter saw, contractors table saw, jig saw, circular saw, pocket hole jigs, and a few other items. I've done a lot of diy carpentry work like installing oak rails, newels, and balusters. I've never completed an "item".
I have no idea how to cut sides to things like book cases or toy storage units and get them the same length and square. The issue that I have is that my miter saw is 12" but it cant cut 10" or wider board width because of the fence.
I have tried to make two items 2 book cases and no matter what the 12" boards are never the same length and the ends arent square.
What is the best method for cutting 12" wide boards?
Do i just need more practice? Very frustrated that I can rout edges and pocket hole join stuff and complete work that seems more difficult and then I just cant get a square edge :(
Thanks for the help.
