A complete beginner’s guide on how to turn rough cut lumber into flat and square boards using a woodworking jointer. We are starting a very big project on building a murphy bed and the first thing we are going to have to do is mill the rough-cut lumber we just purchased. Since this is a major step in the building process, we thought we would talk and walk you through how to use a jointer!

I like this Wen because it has the carbide cutters, extendable bed supports, and it’s competitively priced. It is important to note that with smaller jointers, it becomes harder to flatten longer boards.
