I don’t know where I’d be without my jointer. I use it every day. After looking at your jewelry box, you are definitely going places with your woodworking skills. Here’s why I love the jointer: I always buy rough lumber. First step in milling is to get a flat edge and at least one flat side, then off to one of the saws. If I want to edge join some boards for cabinet sides, shelves, a door ,etc back to the jointer for a perfect glue joint. If you want to run a board through the planer, you’d better have on flat side or it will be a bit of a challenge. Get a jointer and you will never regret the decision.
Best of luck to you…....
