Woodworking jointers and planers are key to milling straight, square lumber for your woodworking projects. Learn tips and techniques for getting the most out of your jointer and planer.

When it comes to flattening and thicknessing lumber, a jointer and planer are like love and marriage in the old song: You can’t have one without the other.
