Dave – I have to confess I don’t own a jack plane and I’m not sure I would know how to use it. I remember back to middle school shop class when we had to use a plane to make a square base for some project and I couldn’t get the darn thing to remotely look square when I put the square on it to check. I went through loads or pine trying to figure it out. If you would have told me I would be doing woodworking as a hobby later in life I would have told you were crazy.

This was my spare box for the swap. Fortunately the first one worked out so I didn’t have to figure this out during the swap.

I’m going to try the bandsaw approach tomorrow night and if it works reasonably well I’m home free. Otherwise I will give the router sled a try.
