Okay, so I am somewhat new to the hobby, though not really a newbie. I have built a china cabinet for my ex, done plenty of trim work, and had plenty of little projects, none of which were finished (as in painted or stained). I did a custom cabinet door for the stairway storage area which I will try to post some pics of. My main focus right now is getting a planer and a jointer. I have the money for a JET 6” longbed jointer with the quick set blades. There is a big sale at Ideal Saw Works in Fresno on friday and I will be picking one up then. I might also get prices on planers then. Home Depot has a Ryobi 13” planer for $200 and I am wondering if it is worth it. Have to go, I am adopting my step-son today.
