Joining wood

Page 2 of 2  


And then the question is do you buy a cheap hammer at Sears or HF, or do you need a hand-crafted one forged from uranium-depleted material with an ironwood handle ?

Aye, there is a "tried and tested fast way" - hire a woodworker.
OTOH, what kind of wood and how do you want to join them? End to end, end to face, end to edge, edge to edge, edge to face, face to face, sixty nine?

Straighten the edges with a jointer plane. Takes some technique, but that's the way they did it in the old days.
Start with a table saw to make sure both edges are as straight as possible. Then clamp both boards together and plane both edges at the same time. But they have to be STRAIGHT.
