When you’re a woodworker, whether a hobbyist or a professional, there are a lot of different tools that you need in your workspace. Eventually, one of these tools will be a planer. Manual planers will get the job done, but they lack efficiency and will force the job to go at a slow pace. For ease of use, an electric planer is the optimal choice. An electric planer will provide many benefits that a manual planer doesn’t and your projects will benefit from an elevated look and standard that will make you proud.
Achieve a Smooth Finish
All planers, whether electric or manual, have the same basic function—make the wood smooth. Raw wood is rough and jagged—it’s beautiful in its natural state, but it’s not always the right aesthetic depending on the project. A planer is used to remove the rough edges and make the surface as smooth as possible. It creates a sleek, elegant, luxurious look that greatly elevates any completed piece. While planers are known for simply smoothing out straight edges, they are actually used in many other capacities.
Enjoy a Wider Variety of Options
An electric planer such as the Festool Planer HL 850 E-F-Plus comes with multiple heads that can be swapped out for different uses and effects. This is a great way to go from basic planing to more complex planing uses such as visually effective flourishes and elegant details. This can make a huge difference in your projects, elevating the overall design and taking your completed pieces from looking basic and functional to looking beautiful and functional.
Give Your Muscles a Break
Planers are great even when they’re manual, but electric planers come with a lot of benefits that manual planers don’t. The most obvious benefit is that it gives your muscles a break. Planing wood manually can be incredibly slow and taxing, but investing in an electric planer will make the job much easier and faster. This will give you the efficiency you need to complete beautifully finished projects in a timely manner.
