If you have strong arms and not much jointing to do, you may want to try this. If you need to joint only the narrow boards used for cabinet or door rails and stiles, you may be able to use a thickness planer; many can be adjusted to joint edges of boards up to 6 in. wide. Thickness planer If your boards are not all smooth and of uniform thickness—as is often the case with hardwoods—a thickness planer is a very useful tool.

50 A well-built project must start with cut lines that are precisely correct. Measuring and marking are not difficult, but it’s easy to make mistakes. Work on developing good measuring and marking habits, so you won’t have to recut or even throw out miscut pieces. Measuring with a tape is often the only option. But wherever possible, measure by holding a board in place and marking it for the cut. When you cut multiple pieces to the same dimension, use the first board or sheet as a guide for marking and cutting the others, rather than using a tape measure for each cut.
