Getting glueable edge on 4Ēx4Ē pine post
Hey guys - Iím new to the forums here. Only been diving into the world of Woodworking for a few months now.
Wanted to see if anyone had a good recommendation for getting a straight and glueable edge on a 4x4 pine post. Picked em up cheap from Loweís and want to join 3 of them together to make a entryway tabletop.
Iím not as concerned with flattening, as I can do that with my router and flattening jig.
I donít have a jointer. I tried using a table saw jig, but my blade would only come up about 3.5Ē, and with the added height of the board the jig creates, I couldnít get it to work. I tried doing one side then flipping it over and doing the other, but that didnít seem to work. I have an okay table saw but not a prograde one (think itís ~$200 SKILSAW).
The straight bit on my router is only about 2Ē deep and I havenít seen one for sale thatís over 3Ē long. So the options Iíve seen that use a router wonít work either (from what I can tell)
The length of each board is about 4í.
Any advice? (Other than just buying a jointer?)
