The other thing the jointer does is make one edge perpendicular to the jointed surface.

Your goal is to end up with S4S, meaning 4 flat sides perpendicular to each other and parallel to the opposite side. You joint one face, then you joint one edge perpendicular to the jointed face. Then you plane the opposite surface parallel to the jointed face, and to the thickness you want the board to be. Then a table saw cuts the ends to length (with the jointed edge on the miter gauge), and width (with the jointed edge running along the TS fence).
