Ditto on what Cato said. I also quickly learned that a planer is just not enough. My vote is to pick up a jointer, preferably at least an 8in., but if you are EVEN considering a 6in jointer THEN GO USED. There are boat loads of used 6in jointers on CL and elsewhere.

For example, I just found over a dozen on CL in my local area or within a two hour drive. Just sayin’...
