Default Flawless Joints

Hi All,
I am a woodturner that deals primarily in birdseye and curly maple bowls. I currently have a great deal of quater sawn stock that I don"t know what to do with. I would just make custom breadboards with it, however now I am looking for some thing different. I want the capability to join two pieces width wise horizontally to form table tops and the like. Here's the catch. The glue joint must be flawless. Also the thickness of the stock will be about 2 inches thick and maybe 8 ft. long. Would anybody out there have any suggestions?

Greg

There used to be a sanding disk available for table saws one side had a slight taper (was slightly conical) the other side was flat. Attach a sanding disk to the tapered side tilt, the saw untill the edge in contact with the lumber is 90 degrees. Then either set it up like a jointer (on its side) or an abrasive planer on its side (if the boards are allready parallel). A big sanding drum may allso be an option But I prefer the large sanding area a 10" disk provides.
Sorry I could not find the disc in my catalogs.
I think that would work.

Sorry I misunderstood. Gluing such wide sufarce areas I have only had problems. For 2 reasons One I usurally use a whater based glue and as the wood expands along the glue line due to whater absorbtion it warps unless restrained.Two I do not have a press to apply enough pressure to the gluing area I can only use lots of clamps and blocks of wood to try to distribute gluing pressure.With the tools I have in my shop I would not recommend it

Do you have a tablesaw with a good blade? You could use biscuits to help align your pieces. Then glue & clamp them together. You could make some cauls to help keep your top flat while glue is curing.
