My understanding is you can joint one edge, and plane one face of a board on the jointer. Now if you can do one face, why can’t you do both ?

The jointer can make both faces of a board flat, but it can’t make them parallel to each other….you usually end up with a wedge if you try. The planer makes the other face parallel to the one flattened on the jointer.
