I am looking for advice on the proper technique required to joint a board edge. I have done a lot of it but I am pretty much self taught. The boards I am jointing are white cedar, 46 inches long, 8 inch wide.They are rough sawn lumber that has been planed. The edges are slightly bowed as one would expect. I am sure there is plenty I could learn that would help me become more efficient.
Thanks

I have had some dificulty getting longer boards ( 4 foot long ) straight on the edge. It can be tricky. I try to exert more down pressure on the board end that has passed the cutter head and more pressure on pushing the other end. This works best with the bowed side up I have found.
