I had bought some 4/4 X 5 and 6” Cherry some of which had a bit of a cup or bow. After a bit of research this seemed like a pretty good idea. 2 pcs 3/4” birch ply 48×7 and 48×3.5” Screwed together, drill 3 holes for 1/4” carriage bolts. I cut up 3 quick hold downs and I was off to the races. Pic 3+4 are kinda before and after shot after I had trimmed both sides. I realize this isn’t a replacement for a good jointer, but it does what it’s supposed to.

Looks like a good alternative for a jointer for someone who has no jointer. This is one of the ways I mill rough cut lumber, no jointer & no room for one.
Depending on your blade’s cut quality, you may or may not need to joint the board’s edges with a hand plane, as I do.
This should serve you well too, if you need to taper legs.
Thanks for showing, enjoy your new tool.

Works very well by the looks of it. Sometimes it’s actually easier to joint a face on a table saw. Options man, options.
