I always start by jointing one side of the board, cup down if possible, until
it is flat and stable. I then place the newly flattened side against the
jointer fence and joint one edge. Then its off to the planer where I place
the flat side on the planer table (and if there is pronounced grain involved,
put the end in first that will cause the least tear-out) and run it through
in this configuration for enough passes to flatten the OTHER side. Once it
is flat (and parallel) on both sides, I begin alternating sides through the
planer until the board is the desired thickness. Now I am ready for the
table saw where I will use the one edge that I earlier joined against the
fence of the table saw to produce a board of the desired width.
