Eight Inch Joiner Fever
Today, for the first time, I wished I had an eight inch joiner instead of a six. Several of the 4/4 rough poplar boards I had bought to build cabinet face frames were 6 inches or wider. :-(
I guess I will just have to get over it because I really don't have the room for an eight incher. Sure would be nice though.
To get around the 6 inch limitation, I jointed a smooth edge on the wide pieces, then ripped a 3 1/4 inch piece out of a couple and a two inch wide piece from another two pieces. One board was just a little wider than the cutter head so I used a hand plane to smooth it out.
Still, an 8 incher would be nice. Hey, a guy can dream, can't he? :-)
Oh well. Onward and upward.
