  1. Thanks Jim.

    I see that LN is offering a 90 degree scraper blade for my 62, I might try that out. Im sure wetsanding with danish oil will have an effect too

    Striped Sapele, Sipo Mahogany, etc.

    The alternating grain pattern is not only prone to tear out - it's "fault line" for splitting.

    I had good results smoothing with a Sandvik carbide scraper at 90 degrees to the grain followed by automotive wet/dry fine sandpaper. Planing with the grain was a nightmare.

    If you can provide some backing to panels with plywood, it should last through casual use.

    You're not alone in this struggle.
