Cato, Yeah, its probably harder on the blades than, say, Poplar. But no worse on a hand-plane blade (or sandpaper for that matter). As a hobbiest, the difference is probably negligable. The questions are “what’s your time worth?”, “do you like hand-planing (being one with the wood)?”, “which tools/methods do you have at your disposal?”, and on and on. I’d say a quick swipe with a paint scraper and don’t worry about the minisquile(sp?) wear. You could be asking the same question about certain woods as well. I’d be more concerned about running boards through my planer that contain silica than glue. And for darned sure, avoid wood with nails like the plague. :) Hope this helps.

-- Backer boards, stop blocks, build oversized, and never buy a hand plane--
