Thank you very much for the replies. I am sorry if there was confusion.

My planer is only 12 inches and I waned to make a 24 inch board. So what I did was make two exact same boards at 12 inches a piece so they would fit through the planer originally. They have all been jointed, planed, glued, and cut into their respective strips. They were then cut again and as you know flipped end grain up and glue again. Each board being 12” wide.

I know not to run through the planer again and in hindsight (found a local mill with 24” drum sander) I would have made the whole board one piece. But now I have two 12” wide blocks ready for final glue, sand, and routing.

Hope that cleared it up a little.
