Its not possible. I've seen some reports of placing a board with shims on
an MDF reference board and running it through a planer. The shims are used
to level up the board on the reference before running it through the planer.
Another approach is to flatten one side with a jointer hand plane.
You've already named the third approach ($$$$).
thanks for the reference -- that had some good ideas
just thinking though, if I try to joint the 6" of say an 8" board, it
seems like I'll have an issue with the unplanned 2" worth sliding over
the center portion of the jointer where the cover/fence is attached.
That is going to present a high spot. I'll have to go "look" at that
that's what I'd like to avoid.. seems a lot of boards are 7"-9" and I
have the 6" jointer. Of course, if I had the 8" jointed, a "lot of
boards" would be 8.5" - 10"
funny how that works..
