”...Should I order differently next time or just get a planer and stop crying. I know it’s just my ignorance ….”

I’ve only been at this ~3yr and all I can say is that having a BS, Jointer and Planer saves more than 50% of the cost of wood PLUS it puts you in control of the finished lumber and product.

I guess it just all depends on how much stock you will be going through on a regular basis, and how much equipment you feel comfortable in acquiring. Another alternative is to find a source that you can buy in-person.
