As an aside, I never thought I'd see the day that I'd be using my various L-N spoke shaves on MDF but was delighted to find that they worked wonderfully for getting rid of the band saw marks and removing the waste to the line. This was done before smoothing the curves with with adhesive backed paper on thin strips of oak. It was kind of like discovering that a large L-N router is wonderful for getting dados to full depth after running wavy sheet goods over a dado blade on the table saw. Who would have thought that "old fashioned" tools would work so well with "modern" materials?!
