Can you use a jointer on both sides?
You can't do both parallel sides by running both sides through the jointer. Your process is correct. If I make a panel paste I attach the two edges, but I attach the second side after it has been torn parallel. Second, you will have a smooth surface, even surface to glue to each other.
