I doubt if the previous poster has even tried it. I haven t, never will, and here s why:

I’m curious as to how you’ve come to this conclusion.

The very first endgrain cutting board I ever made, I ran through the planer. I didn’t know any better and this was about 15 years ago. Due to tear out issues, I posted on a discussion board I was on asking for advice on minimizing the tear out. Some of the members started warning me about running endgrain cutting boards through a planer. Some said they did it regularly but took very minute passes. Despite the warnings, I’ve always done it but I do understand the dangers. I just follow extended safety rules. I’m on my second set of planer blades in 6 years.
