I’ve been reading and thinking all suggested methods. Thanks a bunch… and I watched the “Jointer is Jumping” link posted above by dbhost. Because I had already started my own solution, I decide to continue with it. I ran the extra wide board on my 6 inch jointer and after every pass, I hand planed down the high side. When I was happy, I ran the board through my 12 inch planer and flipped the board over to smooth out the side I worked. The board came out pretty good. The hand planning was fun. If somebody wants to try my method… it works pretty good but know I had to remove the knife guard to accommodate the width. Keep safety in mind at all times. First, I made sure all knives were secure. Then I used a handle pad with rubber on the bottom. My hands and fingers never come close to blades and cutters. Such push blocks and sticks are my best friends in the shop. You’re suggested methods are not forgotten. I will try them all. This site is a good resource… many THANKS!
