the common paint scraper does a great job of removing excess dried glue
prior to using any motorized finishing machine on it.

Rich – I have never even entertained the thought of running anything with endgrain
through a planer. I have never seen or heard of a project exploding in the planer.
when a person understands the structural issues of endgrain and cutting tools,
it is common sense not do it. sure, people “probably” do it all the time and get away with it.
then – there are others that suffer serious consequences with a damaged project and/or bodily harm.
great reference to the Wood Whisperer ! (this goes hand-in-hand with the riving knife/splitter issues).
