That's what I wondered.
Then those website shots of the finished grain. Point?
Is this device meat to improve the finish on less decorative woods (unlike birds-eye, curly, etc). We seem to be running out of the more decorative woods and/or tone woods, like birch and rosewood. Making lesser woods more visually attractive seems like a worthy goal. ;)

The intent is not just to reduce work. The reason is that the wood finish is more beautiful and clear if the surface is cut cleanly, versus abraded into mush with sandpaper. Joe Gwinn
