    I always enjoy your videos, Walter. I was wondering about scraping the surface instead of either planing or sanding, because I have a Lie Nielsen no.62 with a 90 degree blade designed for scraping. So far, I haven’t tried using it for scraping ply, but it has worked well on other timbers. I would be interested on hearing your vies, or the views of others. Keep up the excellent videos, please.

    Lots of good information, as usual, Walter. Thanks.

    Is there any possibility of planing lower quality plywood to make it look more presentable? Or at least knocking off some of the rough surface to make it look better under paint? I’ve considered using cheap plywood for some low budget items, but haven’t tried yet because I decided the plywood wouldn’t look great, even under paint.

    From my own experience, I know that one has to sharpen the blades more often when working with plywood.
    Why does this happen? Glue is a liquid being more fluid than wood!
