Dang gone, you two, Cynthia and Alan couldn't be close for this to be an easy deal, her buy your planer so you could upgrade. Cynthia, I have planed many many rough cut boards on my DeWalt planer. You can see pictures of it in my shop build thread. It is a work horse. Used it when my daughters and I added a two story addition onto our home. We made our own knotty pine horizontal shiplap siding for their bedrooms. Also made a dividing wall between their rooms out of 2X6's that we made shelves and half the wall in one room, the other half of the wall shelves for the other room. Put on our ear muffs from shooting, set it up outside and go to it. It is a quite satisfying job as you get to know each board and see it reveal itself to you. I find myself sorting boards as I plane either because I like or dislike it. Better ones at eye level, others lower or higher. It is for me, just another way to interact with the wood and project, yep, high up front cost, but it cost me nothing when I am not using it, it sits and is patient waiting for the next project. My jointer is a HF version and does a decent job.
God and family, the rest is icing on the cake.
I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place.
