I often use my planer but got rid of my jointer about 5 years ago.
Certainly good to have if you surface rough cut lumber but I simply did
not use mine.
Flat wood. I go through the lumber that I buy to make sure I get
relatively flat wood. Past that If you buy S4S lumber that is not flat
a jointer is not going to do you any good either unless you are OK with
less than 3/4" thick. Selling my work I find that there is simply not
enough savings to mill the wood to final thickness and I go with S4S to
begin with. I only use my planer if I buy S2S or need less than 3/4"
