That's a nice one Dave. Maybe some day, most manufacturers will be offering the helix style head on their planers and jointers as standard equipment.

I’ve got a GI 6” jointer and would love to upgrade to those . I have a feeling the helix head is as much or more than I paid for the jointer though.

Dave , was there any setup , like alignment for the individual blades or anything?

No sir, Rick, pretty easy. Once I got the cutterhead in place I raised the outfeed table to the height of the knives and locked it down. First cut was perfect.

I may make a video of the entire build once this is complete, not sure, video production takes a while.

Finally got to a point where I could begin joining the boards for the shelves and started with the Hard Rock Maple. I'll save the much more expensive Curly Maple for the last in case I learn something new when I join these boards.

Because these are heavy and the edges so crisp they're sharp I decided to do one joint at a time rather than attempt gluing all three boards at once. That turned out to be a good move because doing just one joint is about all the open time I have for TB I, probably could have switched to TB III to get more open time but didn't want to do that.

I used biscuits for making certain everything stays aligned, not for strength, and it worked well for this application.
