Edit: Nailing 2x's together.

Remember, crown, if any goes up. Pick through and find two good pieces with a very slight crown.

Also, if you have a good table saw. Once you nail them together (watch out for nails sticking through), run them through the table saw to trim the edges even to again aid in support and prevent rolling.

If not table saw. Lay them on top of one another and scribe the one that is larger, then trim with skil-saw. You may have to trim both pieces. IMO, this is an imperative step. Top and bottom need to be flush and flat, within 1/32 at least.
