    Ok, so I'm a beginner woodworker. I only have a saw, a crayon and some rasps in my arsenal. I've been wanting to buy some beech or oak planks (100x20x2 cm) but they're all made from glued pieces of thinner wood. Do I face any risk of separation between the pieces, or is everything fine?

    I'm new to woodworking and I'm trying to get a handle on what tools work best.
