I’ve tried to joint 8ft boards for a workbench on my 55” long jointer; was extremily difficult and I didn’t really have a satisfactory result. Wood that I know I’m going to cut into smaller pieces for a project, I roughly crosscut it before jointing it, much easier to handle and I have to remove less wood than if I used a long piece. As for minimums…anything less than about 6” I get pretty nervous about…
