    What happens if you run it through the thickness planer on the end grain and only take off 1/64 at a time and then sand or rout? Will it still tear out badly?

    Great explanation as always. What determines the boards thickness, this example was 1 1/2" thick. Whats the thinnest you would build Thx for all you do, Joe.

    I have just started woodworking so my questions may seem pretty basic. what type of clamps are you using and what size maple and cherry wood are you using? Thanks.

    This looks like a project I might want to attempt, hopefully there's a subtitled version floating around someplace. Being deaf, I get next to nothing from these captionless projects.
