Should flitches be straight?
I just brought home a 4 x 8 sheet of Sapele three-quarter inch plywood. I'm a bit flummoxed. The fletches are laid at an angle, about three quarters of an inch difference from one end of the sheet to the other. I need to lay strips end to end and need for the grain patterns to line up.
It seems as though I will have to make my initial cut along one of the flitch lines and use that as my reference against the table saw fence. Anyone else ever run into this problem?
