If you are working with pallet wood and want straight boards, you could use a jointer. I don’t have one, so I had to come up with another method. I have a cheap desktop planer, so here is how you use it to make straight boards. This is essential if you want to use pallet wood for tabletops, pallet wood walls, or even pallet wood floors.
- 00:35 Clamp the boards with a 90-degree angle to a flat surface
- 01:00 Run them through a desktop planer
- 01:20 Your boards are now straight and the same size
