“God does not build in straight lines,” says a character in the Sci-Fi flick Prometheus. While that is not entirely true, when you are working with wood, you’d best believe it!
There is always some twisting, warping, or weird curvatures and odd shapes when dealing with wood. You will find these even on the processed four by fours you buy from the local wood shop or mill.
And unfortunately, you need these pieces to be perfectly flat, square, and symmetrical if you want to get best results from your table saw, miter saw, or other similar tools. This is why the best benchtop jointer is such an essential tool in your workshop, whether you are an amateur or pro.
And since it is such a useful tool, there are numerous models out there on the market, from different manufacturers. Some are cheap and for amateurs, while the others are typically expensive pro-grade titans.
