[QUOTE=cabinetman;360049]The easiest way to straight edge would be to tack (you can use 4d finish nails) on a piece of plywood...can be " to one side so that plywood edge (factory) is riding on the fence. It only has to clear the widest part of the barked edge. Set the fence to cut off the other edge. Then, remove the plywood and turn the board around and cut the bark off the first edge.

You can do this to whichever will be the backside if you are concerned by the little nail holes. You only need about 3-4 nails.


thats the way i do it. but my holding board has surface clamps mounted to the ply to hold down the board im cutting

Thanks, Andrew. Russellville may be a bit far to drive for me, but I will remember the place.

My question is if I wanna use this stuff for joinery can it be done without a ton of waste and what is the best way to get nice square edges.

The wood is all dried and dressed on two sides usually
Have you tried the minanite farms . Being from central ark that where I get all my wood . I probably spell it wrong minanite ( there like the amish)

Heck, I drive 4 hours to get top-notch material.
Up to Irion Lumber
or over to Hearne Hardwoods.

Haha I'm a weekend warrior so it's hard to make trips like that. And I've got some reasonably good stuff here in town

Well, the time spent doing good work really calls for the best possible material.
Though the material is always the smaller part of the cost of a piece, in relation to the labor, sometimes the lumber bill can be in the thousands, so I get a deposit up-front for that.
Customers actually appreciate the extra effort!
