Well, if your board only drops off on one end, you’re 1/2 way there! If I try to take an even shaving down the length, I get a drop at both ends. So, I do like Bandit mentioned “scooping” ice cream. It simply takes practice. You’ll get there. Sometimes it helps to pencil a straight line just below the edge you’re jointing and look at the edge compared to the line after every couple of passes. You’ll see the progression of where you’re removing the most material. And unless you’re actively trying to “scoop out” the center, smart money is on the ends getting closer to the pencil line faster.
