building a homemade extension for a jointer table is meticulous work, and prone to error. In order for this to be worthwhile, it has to be perfect or you might cause yourself all sorts of problems. I’d suggest that you would be better off jointing longer stock with a straight edge and a router, rather than trying to create a perfectly flat/square/coplanar extension to your jointer. Or, actually, for the types of projects and materials that you are describing, you might just make yourself a sled with an 8’ piece of plywood, then screw the work piece down to the sled and run it through your table saw. Then just clean up saw marks using a light pass with your 4-1/2 plane (don’t alter the straight edge that you just created, simply remove any imperfections caused by the saw blade).
