This is a really good book for beginners, which is what I am. Very well laid out, very well written. I highly recommend this book for anybody w/ a planner and jointer or anybody in the market for one.

this is a great book. it has all you need to know about jointers and planers. shows you how to decide which machine is right for you, how to use them and maintain them. it even shows you how to do various things like make raised panels with the jointer. very useful book if you are new to the woodworking field. just might teach you a few things even if you are not a newby. though not absolutly necessary but nice, this book has tons of high quality color photos which makes reading it that much more pleasent.

Not a good book Sept. 12 2004
By Andersen Torben - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I bought this book because I plan to buy a jointer/planer. I am not a professional but, in spite of my somewhat low level, the book did not give me much useful information. It is mostly a collection of trivialities, such as instructions for making a stand in mdf board, or 1 1/2 pages with ridiculous instructions on how to remove a motor (disconnect wires, remove bolts, remove belt, remove pulley if necessary...). There is no useful info on combined jointers/planers. Flowcharts on choice of jointers/planers seem useless. I do not recommend this book to anyone. The chapter on jointers and planers in Duginske's book "Mastering Woodworking Machines" gives much more information in much less space.

Great beginner's handbook Oct. 26 2011
By R. Gardner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is one of few manuals on jointers/planers on the market...it is well written, aimed at the novice, and filled with helpful instruction and tips. I have to disagree with an earlier review that claimed it is filled with useless trivialities; in fact, one of the things I liked best was the plan to make a planer stand! Both simple to build and useful and reason alone to buy this book. In fact, I built one myself...it is a great addition to my shop. Since these machines are two of the simplist to operate, I'm not sure what else could have been included. In short, I highly recommend this book as a welcome addition to any wood shop library.
