Greetings all. Just joined LJ. Thanks all for the welcome.
A neighbor is residing her home and has a bunch of nice actual 1” tongue-and-groove rough redwood siding that she’s getting rid of. Is there anyway to effectively clean this up? It’s very clean – no rusted nails/screws – but I’ve always been under the impression that just about any used wood will destroy thickness planer blades. In the past, I’ve gone at such projects with a belt sander, but that is extremely time consuming. I’d like to make some simple projects – benches, coffee tables, etc. Any suggestions?
