The wood comes in the door. it must be turned 90 deg. to be jointed and planed. it must be turned another 90 deg. to be run through the table saw.

for example; You are making 200 linear feet of shoe molding in 12 foot lengths. This is easiest if you mill the wood to the correct thickness, straighten it on the joiner run the wide board through the shaper and then rip off the molding. Next you run it back across the joiner to remove the saw marks and the back through the molder and repeat until you have the required linear feet.

Turning those boards 90 deg. again and again is a pain. the job is much easier if you are not required to do it.

In shop design always consider work flow.

-- nice recovery, They should pay extra for that mistake, Eric E.
