I acquired an old jointer and finally rebuilt it as well as got a planer. I know enough to be dangerous with them.
Since I’ve volunteered to make beds for a charity group, mostly out of 2x material, I thought these two tools would help shave off some of the sanding required.
I understand that both require the blade to go in the direction of the wood grain like a router but noticed especially with the planer, the wood would peel around the knots regardless of the direction I fed them.
Is it just hard to plane with this type of wood, or am I missing something?
Thanks for any help!!
