I really don't know. Never thought about it. I always buy 8 to 10 foot boards 6-8 inches wide. I don't have time or patients to flatten one side with a jointer. So a jointer is the only way to go for me.
Again, don't know, never tried it. My first step with rough lumber is to flatten one side on the jointer. I have worked with shorter pieces of rough stock. But I flatten first. I know I've seen jigs in magazines that allow you to shim and hold rough boards for flattening on a planer, with out a jointer. Never thought about using one, cause I have a jointer.
