Typical of my wood working...

... I have to cut, plane, glue into usable panels, and the begin the real project. But, unlike most of my wood working, I'm using hardwoods this time:

I would suggest removing most of the finish with a scraper.

It will play hell on your knives.

If you're fond of scraping, you could do that. Lotta handwork. I'd just plane them off.

I agree with both of you. It will be hard on your knives, but I'd still do it with the planar. You can always sharpen the knives right?

What are you making? Inquiring minds want to know!

I keep a spare set of knives for my planer just so I can send my glued up cutting boards or other pieces through the planer. Taking off small amounts of material at a time.

I'm going to make these into a combo blanket chest/ coffee table. Nothing huge, 22" by 18" by 30". More or less so I can practice dovetail and dowel joints. But, with the number of 2" strips I've got to glue up, this already feels like it could end up being done in time for Christmas 2015!
