I made a jig with two bed frame rails and a sled to flatten a 36×84 surface. Took time, but turned out good.

It’s funny that you say that, and I’m glad to know it works because I’ve been considering doing exactly that. Although I don’t have any bed rails to spare, I noticed that I can buy a new bed frame for $39 at Costco. And they’re painted so no rust. This seems way cheaper than buying angled stock from a hardware store. I also thought that covered with a little packing tape, they would make great cauls too for gluing larger panels.
