Chips like anything with short-grained random areas. Think close curly,
only in spots, not rows.
Sharp, skewed, and slight on the surface planer can minimize chipping to
cabinet-scraper depth fairly easily.
Once took a 1/16 depth turn on the planer when my eldest had already taken
one, unknown to me. Believe me, 12" of birdseye can dim the lights pretty
well. Had a bit of burn until the motor sped up, but otherwise good.
Blades were fresh off the Makita sharpener.
