I have 2 30"x24" panels (made of three pieces each) that I need to surface.
They are 13/16" and will probably end up a bit under 3/4"
The lumber yard will do it for $20, but they want to sand rather than plane.
They claim on small reductions that sanding works out better than planing.
Does this make any sense?
It would be very unusual to plane anything that wide, it would go through a
thicknesser and guaranteing zero snipe on a finished board through that
would be verrrry difficult.
When I was making cabinet doors, not radically different dimensions, I used
my Stanley 80 scraper for most of the surfacing.
