I love how you used pocket screws on an item that most of us consider
shop furniture :) By the way, nice outfeed table! You have given me some
great ideas on attaching my future one to the back of my unisaw.
As always, thanks for contributing.
I've always numbered each edge to be jointed 1 to whatever and when
jointing even #'s are face against the fence (in), odd #'s are face away
from the fence (out). This way your joint is guaranteed to be a perfect
90 degrees, even if the fence isn't a perfect 90. In fact, you get a
bigger gluing surface if the fence is not a perfect 90. With a table
saw you would do the same thing, alternating face up and face down,
eliminating any worry about your blade being a perfect 90 to the table.
Also, like Leon, I've found little need to joint an edge to prepare for
glue up. I discovered once when making something unimportant and was
using a 12 tooth blade, and glued it up rough as hell and it was close
to perfect. I still use the jointer because it is there and handy, but
would have zero problems jointing right from the table saw with a 40 tooth.
