  • jointers vs planers

    i have seen a few woodworking shows and read a few articles that encourage one to square and surface two sides of a board on a jointer and then run the other two sides thru a planer. what is the advantage of this technique over using the jointer on all sides?

    When you run and edge and square it, you will ensure that your cuts will be true to the rip fence.

    By face jointing, you will ensure a flat surface for the thickness planner to follow, giving you flat faces.

      To add to Keystone---while a jointer does a good job on the face, it cannot assure you that one face is parallel to the other, like a planner can do.
