I’ve found that my 13” planer is essential for my projects. I can’t expect to find any given thickness of hardwoods locally (I live in the suburbs of LA). Want 1/2” walnut? You have to make it yourself.

I got a 6” jointer for Christmas a few years ago … and I hesitate to say I’ve never really used it. I’ve found that my table saw with Biesemeyer fence is accurate … and if the board is too cupped or twisted for the saw to straighten it out, I don’t use that board.

Will using the jointer improve the results I’m getting?
