About Our Planers

What is the purpose of a Wood Planer?

A Wood planer is a tool that reduces the thickness levels of all kinds of wood surfaces, whether it be a large cut of wood (slab) or a simple board for a timber deck. A wood planer will do the perfect prep work for the job. It can also be used to flatten and smooth wood depending on the project it is being used for.

Is Wood Planer necessary?

Most woodworkers know that you need both a planer and a jointer to get the most out of rough lumber (at least for power tool users). The jointer is used to flatten one face and square up to one edge and the planer is then used to make the second face flat and parallel to the first.

When would you use a Wood Planer?

Smooth rough lumber, clean up sawn edges and reclaim salvaged boards with a wood planer. Learn to use a bench-top wood planer correctly and avoid common problems like tearout, snipe and ridges. Reclaim old wood, clean up inexpensive rough-sawn boards, and create custom thicknesses for woodworking projects.
