Well SHEEEEEIT! I was given some rather large planks of cedar a while back. It came from a cabinet makers shop which was closed down when he passed away about 8 years ago. I helped his wife move some stuff so she could sell the building and when she tried to pay me I asked if I could have some of the wood instead.
She told me that when he was in business he used to buy ALL his wood from one lumbermill and he trusted the guy to always pick out the “good stuff” when he ordered lumber. She said they never had any issues with his lumber. I’ve used some of the wood and it has been some VERY nice stuff. Rough cut to thicker and wider than “normal” and very clean wood.
So anyways, I’m running a piece of this cedar 1.5” X 12” X 6’ thru my DeWalt planer when all of a sudden I realize I have a small “ridge” starting about 2” off one edge as it’s coming out. I shut down and take a close look at the board. DAMN! THIS little shiney spot catches my eye!
So take heed folks. Even if someone tells you they’ve never had any issues with all the lumber they’ve bought, remove all doubt and check it yourself.
