Did this video help you?

Peter Owens: Those timber/ply bearing blocks scare the hell out of me. I'd like to hear how it stands up after a few hundred hours of shop work. Credit however: it's a clever adaptation, well executed on the whole. 

Drunkun_Munky: I could build that in my sleep, but then again I could also fly a dragon so.. Yeah

UreaSmith: you're smaaaart!

stefan ivanov: good job :)

Gonzo Charvel: Would be an awesome experience to apprentice under you. 

tjdinfl: He's a modern-day Thomas Edison!

Sam Dallas: Why not just run that board through the original thickness planer? I don't understand the advantage of having this machine, vs. the original planer. Can you please enlighten me as to the advantage/use, for this machine, vs. the original planer

Csaba Farkas: what is the difference from the planner?

Joerg Johann: a class planer great

David Butler: What the hell. You're such bullcrap Matthias. You don't do things that any person who isn't already you, could do. But seriously, awesome.

Jason Bye: So 3 years on, do you ever use your old 6" jointer anymore? If I built a jointer like this is it practical and accurate enough to be my only jointer?

mieguistumas: 150 pounds? I would have guessed it is lighter. Does the motor weigh much?

ponkkaa: Excellent piece of work. When I finish making my table saw I'll be heading on to a jointer. Thanx for posting this. Btw...there is no such thing as a quiet jointer.

wdwrxco: OK. Now I am impressed.

murdi allifa: I like this tutorial ... it's good for my less ...

jonnie: @sanityfalling Agree that ply can warp and MDF has its short comings. I have many times used a technique of laminating up my own ply with fibreglass layers inbetween, usually finishing off with a layer of fibreglass on the outside. Great strength and solidity plus the fibreglass and resin really slows down the ingress of humidity so the interior will stabilise to a lowish value ( same principle as polish on furniture, wood is never dry, humidity is never absent, what causes warp is changes to humidity more than actual humidity. I have used this principle for making wheels for a bandmill with 800 Lbs of blade tension and the wheels show no sign of strain ( they are around 3" thick ) or warp. When I want a really flat surface I usually add the final outer layer of resin and fibreglass on an old glass table top. Float glass is usually considered very flat when not supporting its own weight - toughened glass is considered to be less flat but still not bad for an application like this - support the glass table top on an old duvet or something that allows it to "sink in" so weight is evenly supported. Not sure about the effect of continual wear though - fibreglass would wear slowly but it would still wear.

OnePiece Guitars: you are genius. nothing more to say. :)

Duncan Mac: Nicely done, and quite clever. I worked for a guy that had an old Delta cast iron jointer and it was NO fun to move, having to load it in the back of his pickup truck equipped with a topper...

Robbie westhoff: Amazing what creative minds can do, awesome videos! 

Mark Thomas: True Carpenter! Watching you reminds me of my dad (also a true carpenter). He didn't get to teach me all that he knew of carpentry. Watching your videos feels like spending time with him. Thank you for sharing the process as well as your handiwork with the world!

Marco UGAZ JAVE: good tutorials you know how to make a sliding table would greatly appreciate you

Spaghetti Monster: watching this video, I just realized building a wooden steadicam would be a nice project to work on!

jonnie: @sanityfalling- Ahh he uses steel sheet ontop of the ply, the ply is only to provide a firm base for the steel to float on.

PJCmashtun: That is fantastic!

palabful: good man. thank you so much, jedi master:)

Aj H: If you really want to impress you will need to improve the jointer design.For starters if it could grind coffee beans that would be different.Seems like a waste of talent copying a proven tool.

latif cenaj: You are the best master, I like all your videos

Mark Collier: You are a very impressive person. Thanks.

Martin Menia: Most excellent. Question: Motor details? 120 or 240 V Horse power?

blwizard: Very clever how about any ideas for making a Radial arm saw

MrCunty79: where do u live and do u want to build me one

Danielle Kunkle: Still not smart enough to put a bucket underneath to catch all those shavings

elrond3737: My dad mad his own jointer back in the 60's. I think more guys did that then today. People have more money now (?) and relative prices are lower. He also made a portable table saw using a skil saw. 

Matthias Wandel: Because I bought 1 quart of green, and it lasted for three bandsaws, a jointer and a dust collector. Not sure what colour I'll get next.

clockguy2: Paste wax applied with a rag is what we used in our cabinet shop to lubricate and protect metal surfaces such as table saws and jointers. It really makes a difference in reducing friction and prevents rust. Should your table get rust on it, the green Scotch bright pads are awesome for polishing it back up quickly.

Chris Ryall: To loud? Put some ear plugs in.

dch888: So four long screws fixes all the safety issues does it? Facts: the cutterblock is a heavy object which spins very rapidly and so has a lot of energy; wood although strong can fail along the grain. Extra long screws won't cure the fact that wood can split along the grain. Although this is a 'clever' idea, I think it is one design which is pretty stupid safety wise. You can get away with this on a bandsaw as the energy is much lower, but for a planer (jointer) the forces are much greater.

Robert Hart: Just had a "duh" moment! I had been trying to think of a solution when I read this comment. Simple and effective. I also enjoy your series Matthias. The biggest thing I get from vids of this type is the theory behind it. You can tuck a theory away in your head and most likely find a fit in an idea of your own. Thanks for showing them.

wordsnwood: You comment in several places about the noise of this jointer, being due to the motor. Have you ever considered replacing this noisy universal motor with an induction motor? You do seem to come across 2nd hand motors fairly regularly. That should not be that difficult a modification, shouldn't it?

Baxter: @Matthiaswandel create a wooden 3D printer/Rapid prototyping machine?

Hoang Cong Thanh: Great video, TFS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

pinkiewerewolf: Awesome again. If I tried to build a jointer it would look like a loosely wound ball of yarn that had been run over by a cement truck.

jocely nicodemos Nicodemos: O cara tão simpatico e um bando de debiloide falando titica.........

Tom Polanske: Hey Matthias, Just wondering if I could get away with making the in-feed and out-feed a different thickness because 3/4" ply is very expensive around my area. Could MDF be a OK substitute?

Gerrit Duvenage: That looks brilliant. I need to get some wood and start building one.. Do you ever sell the machines you make or just the plans? And can you buy such a planer drum with the bearings attached without having to but a full planer?

peakhouse: this is most excellent sir ! thank you for informative post.

barkebaat: Matthias : I just subscribed to your channel after watching a couple of your videos and must say I am VERY impressed. I'm a professional furnituremaker myself and looking forward to checking out the rest of your uploads. Keep up the good work, thanks for sharing - it's very inspirational !

Edward Hickcox: Matthias, you crazy Canadian.... I don't know ANYONE else that would make their own power tools. Except maybe me. Thanks for putting your instructions all online!

Swedish Holmberg: this guy is really amazing
