I'm a newbie just trying to get started and need a little advice. I have access to some rough sawn lumber and would like to use this for my early projects while I'm learning the ropes.
My question is, what do I need to sqaure up my lumber? I know the planer (TP1300 is on the wishlist) is necessary. What else might I need? I'm a NY watcher and have seen Norm use the joiner for the first pass (along the width of the board) but a lot of the wood I have is pretty wide and I wouldn't be able to use the joiner for a cut across its width. How do you get the first side flat if it's wider than the joiner or you don't have a joiner (yet). Can the planer do this for you?
I know this is probably common knowledge but I appreciate your paitence with a newbie.
Thanks in advance!!!
