  • jointer technique question....

    out of curiosity...

    i watch quite a bit of "woodworks". david marks is awesome...

    anyway, something hit me while watching last night and i was wondering why he does this....

    anytime he joints the face of a board, he does not use the fence as a guide, and he always seems to skew the board slightly so that the corner of the board touches the knives first and runs them over the knives at an angle to the fence.

    why is this? why would he not want to run the board against the fence? is this just a personal preference or is there a reason for this?

    thanks

    The same technique is used on a planer to reduce tearout. His jointer just happens to be wider than the Mississippi so he get away with it!
