Hello fellow jocks,
For instance, when working with some woods like Purple Heart or other such woods, I’ve read you need to keep your blades extremely sharp. Then, there are woods which may be of higher toxicity and special precautions should be taken when working with them. Or a wood that is prone to chip out when planing, etc. just general knowledge that should be known by a woodworker when considering the purchase of a certain type of lumber I guess is what I’m looking for to make sure I don’t spend heaps of money that will either be really hard to work with or that I don’t have the tooling to work with.
Anyone know of something along these lines?
