Planning of waste board

052222 stars
Been using my x-carve since 12/2020, had minor issues, but now my machine has gone hey wire. I have checked the waste board and it has some minor warpage, I have adjusted my rails and checked for lose bolts and nuts. I need to plane my waste board, and have purchased the bit to plane the board; however, never done this before and have no clue as how to get started.

this might help you, or bore you to death.

I answered this one over on the FB post, but do this (video) for the quick fix on the next carve, its a good practice to verify the top is parallel to the spindle plane of XY movement regardless of if the waste board is surfaced or not. . .
