What a timely post! I would never consider sending end grain through a planer, however my dad spent some time over my place today and wanted to help. While I was feeding the baby, he decided to send my first end grain board that I glued last night through my planer. It’s in 11 pieces right now and judging by the 1/2” deep gouges (my planer does not have a cutter head lock), at a minimum I need new blades, I may need a new planer. Luckily no one was hurt.

I made a jig but never got a chance to use it. The basic concept can be seen here:

This was on the top of a workbench, but you’ll get the basic idea. I have a brand new 3/4” bit still in the whiteside package what that impossible to remove plastic on the end of it.
