Something to really consider is that a planer is not going to flatten your stock. It will make it uniform thickness and clean it up but, if you have a warped/twisted board on the infeed side, your gonna have a warped/twisted board on the outfeed side. A planer is a great help to me but I think some don’t understand that it doesn’t work like a jointer. You’re still going to have to get 1 side fairly flat before you plane. For me, that’s with a handplane or, when I finish making it, a sled/jig. Just something to chew on.
