It has to be the jointer first. A planer places force down on a board as it is going through the cutter head. This means a board with a cup or twist will be flattened, cut and then will spring back to its original shape. You need a jointed face before a planer can make another side truly parallel.

Old school woodworkers will always take a piece of rough-sawed wood and flatten one side, rotate it 90 degrees, and put a square flattened edge on it using the jointer fence to keep it orientated. Next run the other 2 sides through a planer for a fairly straight and true 4 sided piece when making furniture. This does not always work perfectly because wood will sometimes warp/twist/bow during planing due to changing tensions as wood fibers are removed.

If I had to pick, I would get the planer first. That way you can at least get your lumber pretty darn close to flat and parallel. Furthermore you can resize your lumber when necessary. But that’s just my opinion.

Adjustment on dewalt planer


I don't know which planer you have, but if all the planing happens on the top side of your stock then all surfaces underneath should be at the same level.
If you have a fancy planer that cuts on the bottom side, then the outfeed table should align with the cutters and the infeed table would be adjusted below that by the cut thickness (like a jointer

How to set up replacement blades in a DeWalt DW677 planner? What is the best method to get the blades at the same height?


I have a Hitachi planer that came with an unlikely looking fixture for setting the blades. Perhaps your DeWalt came with one of these too. Looking at the thing you would wonder what the heck it was. If no such fixture was included, you might try a "Jointer Pal" This is a magnetic device that is designed for use with a jointer, but would probably work on your planer.
