Or you could spend a small fortune and buy them from Woodpecker. They have been pushing them lately. 😳

Come to think of it, since I am usually alone in the shop. I don't know when I will ever get a chance to use it.
WAIT...You mean you don't talk to yourself in the shop...?!?!?!?

Points to Ponder...

LEARNING - the decision you make to know and
understand more about some thing.

TIME - the thing that gets in the way of learning.

Comes from the practice of doing a glue-up, then cauling it a day...

I think we need an emoji that stands for "I think I'll pass on that".

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Why work at putting a crown in the board when they are readily available with crowns already in them from the lumberyard. Most likely two boards in the stack next to each other will be book matches and will have the same bow and tensions.
To make sure one is not stronger than the other clamp them together and use straight edge to confirm the joint is strait.
