If you are going to continue into any kind of finer woodworking projects you will probably need both so start saving now.

Buying the rough lumber is cheaper and offers more alternatives than the big box stores.

I bought a planer first, because it was on sale at an unbelievable price, but within 2 months I had to get the jointer.

Makes a world of difference to have flat, square, and dimensioned boards to work with.
