    Last week I started building my own jointer/planer and so far the build has worked out really well! All the small parts are made out of 18mm birch plywood as well the tables will be. The housing is made out of spruce construction lumber that I jointed using the track saw. The cutter head is from a small thickness planer. Still have to find a motor (2000-3000W). :)
    This is where I have the plans from (they are great): http://woodgears.ca/jointer/homemade.html
    In the video you can see the mechanism that raises and loweres the infeed table. It looks surprisingly better when painted.

    @Brazilviking: It puts one flat side on a board. :)
    @Slingpit: I guess you are talking about a thicknesser.
    the little planer tis cutter head came from had a 2000W motor so I want at least the same amount of power.
    Mr. Wandels plans are really amazing! It makes the build so much quicker to have an excelent set of 3d cad models, templates and so on...

    Don't apologise for showing this to us. Thanks for the pictures!

    Nice work--having a straight edge whenever you want will be sweet :)

    A section or subforum for tools and methods of work might be a great addition here on the forum.
