What Does a Jointer Do? – Ask Matt #13

A jointer is a very important tool in the shop.  Its job is to set the foundation for all future work you will be doing with a board. Being able to properly mill a board flat and true is a fundamental task in woodworking because flat work pieces lead to more precise and consistent joinery in your projects.

This is the thirteenth episode of my Ask Matt series.  If you have a topic suggestion please feel free to sent it to me.
