What Does a Jointer Do? – Ask Matt #13

June 8, 2015

A jointer is a very important tool in the shop.  Its job is to set the foundation for all future work you will be doing with a board. Being able to properly mill a board flat and true is a fundamental task in woodworking because flat work pieces lead to more precise and consistent joinery in your projects.

This is the thirteenth episode of my Ask Matt series.  If you have a topic suggestion please feel free to sent it to me.

    This video was very informative and helpful. I appreciated all the information I learned and will use it going forward with my crafting. My question is where did you get those clamps used to glue panels together towards the end of the video? I can’t seem to find them anywhere.

    Thank you!

    Really good demonstration on the use of a jointer. I am looking at that same jointer. Do you have it on a mobile base or some method for moving it around?

    • Thanks! It’s on the super heavy duty base with extension rails
