Planer Jig for boards that were wider than the joiner


Recommended Posts

I have an 8" joiner and I regularly have boards that are wider than 8". I was using carpet tape and plywood scraps to be able to run the boards through the planer, get the opposite side flat, pull off the plywood and remove the lip that was left from the joining process.

But i frequently didn't have an appropriate scrap of plywood. Sometimes the carpet tape pulls the veneer off the plywood.

So I decided to make a jig for the planer by using UHMD plastic, 3/4 plywood and a couple scrap blocks to make a jig for my planer.
