    well our buddy tom, dropped over for some sanding and when he brought out the two cutting boards he forgot that its nice to have the pieces relatively close in thickness,, well the one board was 1/8 higher on the two strips..well we got out the scrub plane and make short work of the high spots tom, said duh why didnt i think of that i siad i dont know why didnt yu so one more time planes came to the rescue and saved alot of machine time.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    Yeah, I often prep one side of a severely warped board with a scrub, before putting it thru the 'lectric monster. A well honed #40 or 40, or even a 'converted' 3 or 4 used diagonally across the grain works very fast.

    I can't imagine having to spend days at a time prepping stock with handplanes only, like our forebearers did, though. Guess that's why they had apprentices, eh?
