I’m in the same boat; I want to build one. BUT…I’m going to tackle his 12” jointer first. I ordered the plans yesterday: They’re VERY well drawn and clear. I have a 14” Delta band saw, so there’s no “need” for another. I have a 6” Jet jointer that is annoyingly too narrow, but an 8 or 10” jointer is too expensive and long for my shop (car garage).

If I can find the time to finish the jointer over the winter (doubtful), I’ll start a band saw in the spring, though I’d like to see if I can adjust it out to 18” over the 16”.
