Adam, what he’s doing is jointing part of the board to get 6” flat. Then applying plywood to the jointed part to raise the whole board up. From there he can plane the top side with the ply making the bottom flat. After the top is flat in the planer the original side with the raised edge can be flipped over and planed. It’s a way to trick the planer to think the bottom is flat. Nice technique.

Hmm.. does that help? I used to be a teacher of 30 yrs. Everything is a teachable moment. Damn attribute I can’t shake. I turned my kids into physicists at the dinner table by the time they were 15. I had very patient and understanding kids.
