If he's actually planing it, it should look like very
nice modern (or medieval) timber when he's done with
it. If it doesn't he should re-examine his technique.
With a sharp well tuned plane and scrapers you can
make a piece of wood feel perfectly smooth and all but
What he may mean is that when he's using modern two-by
stock he's plaining it down so it doesn't scream, "I'm
a 2x8!" Whenever I do a quickie project out of such
materials I try to take enough wood off of both sides
to remove the rounded corners. (I usually use the
electric planer for this not so satisfying task.)

of furinture. Sometimes I just trim off the
rounded edges, sometimes a plane the whole thing
down to remove the rounded edges.
On the whole a 2x10 or 2x12 is ( at least in my
area ) yellow pine and a better quality wood than
the 1x whatever shi....cra...ummmm stuff that is out
I've even ripped a 2x12 into 2x2's to get better
wood for tent poles that is available as an off
the rack 2x2.
yellow pine is a good wood to work with for
most things. So long as it's not for A&S...
Why not pine?
