I saw this technique in a video and thought I would try it.

Disclaimer: The guard must be removed for this procedure. Do so at your own risk.

After jointing, use a spacer to plane the un-jointed side. Flip the board and plane off the elevated strip of wood left from jointing.

Works great except working without the guard is a bit unnerving.

Since you will have to flip the board end for end will that not put the grain against the cut?
Better off learning how to use a handplane.And doing the minimal amount of work to get a face ready for the planer.

Yep, it works. As far as AJ’s comment, you can still send the board either way through the planer. So no more cause for concern with tearout (no more than normal).

AJ, no issues with grain you just send the board through the planer either direction.

The board supports the jointed face. After that you flip and plane off the ridge.

Don’t be so foolish as to work without a guard. It’s pretty simple.

Alaska Guy,
I like the Euro guard. You have to remove the rabbeting ledge for this technique, but the type of guard you suggested would still work just fine.

Thanks for posting.

You can also just run it through the jointer flipping it each time you run it through. Works fine, might take off a bit more wood (not sure). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tvakUFUrOXA
I like AlaskaGuy’s idea for a guard…
