Topic tags/keywords: question joining sanding plane

Hello, I have been given several nice blocks of walnut of exactly 2”×2”×36”, which have been perfectly trued, squared and dimensioned a while ago; don’t know what they are for. But, if I want to use one of them in a tabletop glue-up, do I have to plane its edges to expose fresh wood for better binding or this is not necessary? I am reluctant to mess with this already perfect surface and will only do resurfacing if it is required. Thanks, h.

If you can dry clamp them and the joints look tight and square,
you don’t need to do anything. The glue will stick just fine.

Have your say...
