With that being said, I m waiting for my new Baileigh 16” x 86” jointer/planer combo machine to be delivered later this week. :)

Again, folks, thanks for all the replies. Considering that flattening anything wider than the capacity of whichever jointer I got would require the use of a planer sled anyways, it certainly seems like that’s the way to go. I’m thinking I’ll keep an eye out for the next used Dewalt that shows up. I’ve used a few lunchbox planers in the past, from cheap (Porter Cable) to heavier and more expensive (Makita), but man, the 735 left a nice finish.

Considering that an entire wall of my shop will be bench/cabinet space, edge-jointing fairly long boards with a router and straight edge shouldn’t pose any problems.

On that note, anyone have a suggestion for a preferred planer sled build?
