So one question is WHY no jointer? Cost? (they are not cheap)
Space? Yep, they take space.
Dust? Yep, they make dust and require collection. If you have allergies…

So let’s say you like the hand plane idea…
A good plane can cost upwards of $300. A nice Lie Neilsen #7 will run about $450.
They require a fair amount of skill.
They require an investment in sharpening tools and more skill.
But they don’t make dust or take much space.

So pay your money and take your choice!

-- Some problems are best solved with an optimistic approach. Optimism shines a light on alternatives that are otherwise not visible.
