How to mill timber/lumber – Introduction to milling with a jointer and thickness planer


In this video I take you through the whole process of milling your timber to be square, flat, and parallel using a jointer and thickness planer.

I show you how to determine grain direction, and how to best run your workpiece through the machine. I also show you where to put hand pressure and talk you through some of the safety concerns/precautions.

A big thanks to the guys at for supporting the show and bringing this video to you.
