Agreed, a wide jointer is more versatile.

Here’s a link to how we have successfully used wide boards (16” + ) without ripping them. This is especially useful in period furniture, as is the case in the piece we were building at the time. This piece is about 12 years old now, has been moved several times from one home to the next, and is fine.
