Set your jointer for 1/16”. set the board on the jointer at the half way point. Run it through, turn it around, and repeat. After the second pass, start your cut from either end. You should have a straight edge when done. Take it back over to your table saw, and cut it to width. If the board is ready to stop moving on you, you will have a reasonably straight piece. It won’t be purrfect as the wood will only allow you to get close…... Jerry (in Tucson)
