if you don't use the jointer the edges will be flat but not square or parallel to each other.

Planer will get consistent thickness on your boards, a joiner will fix the edges so you can get the boards to fit together tightly.

There are ways to make a thickness planer do some of the things a jointer can do but it involves shims and some real skilzzz.

If you are starting with rough sawn lumber, it's jointer, saw, planer...

Since you're just making a collar out of this, a jointer is not necessary. If you were gluing the boards together side by side to make a really wide piece of wood, then you might be concerned about it.

I would think a straight guide board and a circular say would be adequate for this project. I dont see a need for a planer either, especially if you want a distressed look.

thats what I was thinking originally, but now that I have access to a planer. So there isn't a reason not to do it right.


Now, looking for some opinions. I don't know how much of the other black keezers yall have looked at, but people tend to stain their wood collars very dark. Due to the beauty of the wood, I was thinking about just using a clear satin finish. Thoughts?

will you have some scrap pieces after you cut it into the collar? If so, try a clear finish on one piece, light stain on another and dark on a third so you can see what you like.
