    Question Plans for a planer sled to use for jointing?

    Does anyone have plans to make a sled for a planer in order to use the planer for jointing?
    Thanks

    In its simple form just take a piece of plywood slightly bigger than the piece of solid you are running and screw a cleat on one end for the wood to butt against then shim between the board and the ply so it doesn't rock and run it through the planer.

    Hmmm, I think he is asking about edge jointing with a planer. Here you go: http://www.woodmagazine.com/wood/sto...8612612504.xml or if you did mean face jointing: http://www.sawmillcreek.org/showthre...ht=planer+sled
