I have a feeling I’ll get addicted to it. I think my primary focus that I’m interested in is making boxes. I know everyone and their mother makes boxes, but it’s something useful that you can get creative with. So edge jointing is important to mix different species of woods together for visual effect so a jointer would would be nice but also a smoothing plane to get everything smooth. I have a thickness planer, but no jointer so I do most edge jointing on the table saw or router with straight edge, but the setup takes a little time. It’d be nice to throw a piece in a vice, grab the jointer plane and be done with it in the time it would take to set up a router and straight edge.
