I have just started building a platform rocker for my wife (just like Knotnow’s http://lumberjocks.com/projects/81352 )
I am using very sharp skew and ligh cuts. I could see that I was getting tare out when I was roughing it out with a gouge. So I stop a 1/8 short of finished diameter and used 80 grit sandpaper to get to finished size .
Should I just overlook the tear out and try to fill it in or start over. I got a ton of this red oak so it’s not a big deal to start over. I am hoping to find a way to avoid the tare out any ideas ?
