· I <3 the smell of sawdust

One of the hardwood suppliers I use has the ability to plane/joint any of the rough cut lumber they sell. They have very high end machines and will create a perfect glue joint and thicknesses. I had them do the edges of some walnut I bought because they were long pieces I didn't have a jointer at the time. They charge me $1 per board (not board foot). That's cheap, but their lumber is pretty expensive, so..... The only issue is that their planer leaves marks that need to be sanded out more than my small planer, which leaves a finer finish.

You can also buy 6S6 lumber from the borgs (HD & Lowes), but the quality is suspect and variety is very limited.
