OK, shop is finally stocked with lots of wonderful Grizzly tools: G0690 TS, G0490 8" jointer, G0453Z planer. Now I need to figure out how to use them to make cabinets. My first challange is removing about 1/16" bow from a 4' length of S2S 13/16" stock which will be used for door stile/rails. The finished flat board must be 3/4" thick. What is the best approach? Also, I'm now wondering why I purchased the planer if I'm going to be using the jointer to remove bow from 13/16" stock. Seems that the process of removing bow on the jointer is going to leave me, if I'm lucky, a 3/4" thick board. So where does the planer come into play? Should I have not bought the planer for my cabinet making projet?
Any advice on how to remove the bow from the board is appreciated.
