This will be useful if you decide to make round boxes.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N6_2h-vo0jAI have a quarrel with this guy because he is cutting the round parts with the upper guides way too high above the cut........perhaps he did that for the benefit of the video.

Quote from: Icarus on January 25, 2021, 11:26:32 PMTank in the colonies we call that machine a Jointer. It is a most useful machine that can make life easier for the woodworker. A planer is a whole other machine whose function is only to "plane" or remove some of the surface of the board. It self feeds whatever you run through it. The top has feed rollers and is covered safely covered. The jointer is to be feared....FEARED!! Half of my right hand forefinger is long gone. Thanks to a dumb mistake I made years ago. Never even go near that thing unless you are well equipped with push sticks or handles. The wildly rotating blades make no mind of what they are cutting. The part you are cutting can kick back violently if the blades encounter a knot or other hard place in the wood. The Jointer is much more versatile as it can make beveled edges and rabbets. Just be damned careful with it.
