  • Plane stained wood

    I have solid pine stained kitchen cabinet doors. They have some slight damage and a flute about 2" from the edge in the door. The flute is about 1/8" deep. I was going to plane the door faces to remove the damage and the flute. The place that has a planer I can use said they won't allow me to becasue the doors have stain on them. Why would this matter?

    My guess is the stain and finish will gum up the knives. It may also accelerate dulling of the blades. Ask them why it is not allowed. Can't hurt to ask, then you'll know for sure.

Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."

      I would imagine that the likelihood of finding embedded metals increases significantly with finished products that have a little age on them also. I know you can detect those, but they may not trust someone to do a good job of that on their equipment.

      My suspicion is that your suggestions are right on.

        Good point. I forgot about the possibility of running into fasteners (nails, staples, etc). They would certaintly do damage and I believe that that is the real answer.
