A planer is a necessity if you want the creative control of choosing what thickness lumber you want to use in your project. I don’t own a jointer, and I can honestly tell you I rarely feel like I’m missing anything. But I will say I build mostly small projects, and usually buy S2S lumber. If I had ready access to inexpensive rough stock, and built more furniture, I’m sure I’d want a jointer.
