    Where is the discussion on face jointing a board? It seems to me that the operation is more likely to incorporate bad technique that could lead to injury.

      Yeah, that’s kind of an obvious omission. Maybe, … just maybe, they want you to pay for the video on face jointing. Ya think??? 🙂

    You have a lot of common sense tips that a lot of people don’t even think about. Keep it up, George.

      Hi, Josh!

      Jointing establishes a perfectly flat and straight edge surface on a board. Face jointing is used to flatten one face of a rough cut board, and is normally done to establish a flat reference surface prior to running through a surface planer.

      Edge jointing establishes a square and straight edge on a board which prepares it for edge to edge gluing.
