Can a tablesaw be turned into a jointer?

Fortunately, there's an easy way to turn your tablesaw into a jointer (only a 2.75" wide one, but nonetheless: a jointer.) This involves making a jig that clamps onto a non-straight board while providing a nice straight edge to ride against the fence and produce a single straight edge on the board.

How do you joint a fence on a table saw?

Slide the jig and fence toward the blade. Mark the position of the back of the blade on the jig. Remove the jig from the rip fence and move the fence to the left side of the blade. You need to VERY carefully position the fence for the cut in the jig that creates the offset.
