Absolutely. Building a bed frame from rough stock, the biggest problem is that I need 6” wide boards for the side rails and my jointer doesn’t have the capacity to do it. Even though it says 6.125” in clearance, the real usable space is more like 5.5”. I am currently looking to go from a 6” to an 8”. I think a 6” is a good starter, but I would rather have either an 8” or 10”. The only thing to consider is that anything that is above a 6” is usually 220v or higher.
