Find there are not so many boards wider than 8 inches… but when needed, a sled works great in the planer.

I get by with a 6 inch jointer, and a 15HH planer.

Agree with your observation about board width…and will add that even when I can find them wider than 8 inches I get “nervous” using them. True “old growth” lumber might have worked for wide boards but I haven’t had much luck with wide boards.
