Has anyone ever used Red Elm for outdoor furniture projects? I’m going to try my hand at some Adirondack chairs and I’m just not a big fan of cedar.

Looking for an explanation…tonight I attempted to flatten an end-grain cutting board on my buddies drum sander. After getting to that point in which I thought it should be flat, it wasn’t. There were one set of diagonal corners that continued to rock when placed on a flat surface. I was not able to correct this even after several more passes, on both sides. I have never had this happen in the handful of times I have used this sander. After scratching my head a bit, I ran a 5/4 rough piece of walnut through the sander several times…and as luck would have it, it was perfectly flat! So is it the cutting board that is causing the problem??? I’ve run end grain boards through this same sander in the past and have never had this problem…

Have your say...
