Great! I'll look it up. Appreciate it Chris. :)

You can use what's sometimes called a straightening jig - essentially a long sled to which you temporarily attach the board, then rip it on a tablesaw. That'll give you an edge from which you can work.

It's not only the home centers, as noted, that don't have square ends---

I've purchased boards from premier wood suppliers, that weren't square.

New Kreg 720Pro

I saw the video Kreg put out for this new jig and had high hopes for it.

I purchased one today and am very disappointed with it.

First the docking station is extremely cheap. The plastic is pathetic. A Lego has more…
