After the glue has cured the top is flattened with the thickness sander.
Snipe is removed with the stroke sander and the 120 belt.
An edge is jointed straight and square to the top.
Then it's ripped to final width.
It's too wide for my crosscut sled and too long for my tablesaw fence, so it's cut to rough length with a jigsaw. The cut is finished with a router and a bearing guided straight bit. I climb cut the right corner to avoid the grain tearing out.
The top is then given an edge profile, and final sanded with the stroke sander to 220.
