This afternoon/evening I ran all the face frame stock through my tablesaw with a fresh blade. I cut it about a light 1/4" wider than the final size I wanted to achieve, then after all stock was cut I ran it through my drum sander with "VERY" light passes. It took a lot of time to do it this way, but the results were just what I had hoped to achieve.....absolutely no tearout, just nice smooth face frame stock.
I'll be posting pictures when I get further along with this project....stay tuned.
