My jointer is only 6 in.wide, and I often have to joint wider boards than that.To flatten those boards with my big planer, I use a sled with a long clamp-on saw guide embedded into it to hold the board.
With the board clamped at its ends, I slip wedges under the edges to even out the high spots, which maximizes my yield.The wedges stay put with hand pressure only and keep the board rock-steady on the sled.
The system works wonderfully...
