I’ve had both 8” and 12” jointers.

Bigger jointers tend to have long beds, which
come in handy if you’re making entry doors and
other millwork but you can get furniture made
with shorter beds.

I currently have a 10” jointer and it’s adequate for
furniture making. It’s an INCA combo jointer/planer
(I just use it as a jointer) – RIKON makes a knockoff
of the INCA design now.

If you have a big shop a big jointer and planer
are nice to have, but the space they take up
is an issue in a smaller shop.
