Edge Jointing table leaves for big dining room table
So I'm kind of a novice, but it hasn't stopped me from tackling big expensive projects like the 106" cherry dining room table with 2 leaves. I've already glued up my 4 panels for the table, including the two big pieces and the two leaves. Of course for an extension table, the boards need to be perfectly edge jointed because they aren't getting clamped together nor glued or anything like that. Some alignment pins and some little locks are all I'll have when I put the boards together, but right not there is a 1/32" to a 1/16" gap on the extreme edges of the 48" boards when attempting to put the table together without clamps.
So I DON"T have a jointer. I DO have a table saw, but its the Dewalt Compact Job site table saw. The length of the edge required to be true is about 48", so that table saw won't work.
I do have a Bora 50" straight edge (actually two of these).
I do have a circular saw.
I do have two routers.
I also have a hand plane but I'm terrified of it because I think there is no way I'm skilled enough to do it by hand and I don't want to ruin my project.
How do you recommend I do this edge jointing for the panel/leaf/leaf/panel given the tools i have. (or spending <$100)
The leading thought is using my router along the Bora 50" straight edge and doing it by hand using the router. I don't see how I could use this particular table saw. The circular saw can attach to the Bora straight edge to be converted to a track saw, so that's also a possibility.
Any thoughts or advice on this would be great!
