So I straight cut the ends to clean up the nails and other marks. Took a tape measure from three points and marked an equal distance on the other side, lined up my straight cut board and make the corresponding cut.

Upon taking my square to the corners, and a level down the side, it would seem there is some bow to the wood, thus me wanting to now take my saw down the sides of the slap, to make those straight as well.

When measuring the two ends that i just cut and knowing the length is within a few mm of each other, I decided to measure the diagonals… they are somehow 1/2 in off from each other. So I’m standing there wondering how to truely square all 4 sides so that when I go to attach the trim to the outside, it’s a simple measurement and a 45 degree miter.

The width from one end to the other was within 1/16 or less from three different points.
