Machine perfect edges without a jointer?
I’m making a buffet out of walnut. I’ve decided to do shop sawn veneers for the sliding doors. I’m having good luck resawing my boards and planing them down to 1/8″. The problem comes in with my edge. I can’t get a perfect joint between two pieces. I don’t have a jointer. I’ve tried getting a good edge with a #6 plane with poor results. I tried running the 7/8″ thick boards on edge through my lunchbox power planer. This provides better results than the hand plane, but still not perfect. My next thought is to sandwich my walnut between two longer boards that are the same width. My hope is to eliminate the snipe on the leading and trailing edges.
Any suggestions on another plan? Thanks!
