I’m not super experienced in working with raw lumber. For my current project, I’ve got a rough-milled plank that’s approximately 7.25”x32”x1.4”. I’d like to consider jointing the 7.25” face, but we only have a 6” jointer, correct?
(I say “consider” because it’s not really critical for this project since it doesn’t require perfect square/parallel faces, but it would be nice to figure out if it is practical.)
Anyway, has anyone done this sort of operation with the tool(s) we have?
I found a tutorial for one possible way to do it, but it would require taking off the built in blade guard and ideally adding a temporary guard on top. Seems a bit overkill if not really needed, but curious if anyone has experience or other ideas.
