    I'm curious about the regional "dive" favorites from The Usual suspects... I'm in a region that considers mayonnaise a spice, but does have amazing "Clam Shacks" like Evelyn's in Tiverton, RI.

    It's perfectly safe, but "flashes" off the solvent after the emulsion penetrates the surface. This should cure in a well ventilated space.

    The varnish will likely form a hard layer, but only at...

    A picture might be illuminating.

    My doubt is that you are pursuing flatness appropriate to machine tooling, which may not be necessary for getting sufficient flatness in wood joints.

    I like the HNT Gordon single blade 3/4" shoulder plane.

    It's *much* more comfortable than the Veritas plane was.
    Not cheap, but good value for money.

    Insure your tools, carry an "umbrella" policy to protect
    your home from lawsuits.

    Is the electric panel beefy enough?

    Can you park at the shop?

    Sounds ideal.

    I would also saw and rasp this, for control and a uniform layout.

    I can't get an "incannel" gouge sharp enough to make that crisp.

    Expense and space limitations lead me to my EZSmart track saw. I did add a slider to my bandsaw, but a Tablesaw never re-entered my plans.

    Bearings and knives are rated at the original speed.

    If you can "step down" the pulleys to achieve the same speeds, it should be safe.

    +1 on the Hayward compendium.

    The drawings are clear and most of it is quoted in modern writing about "how to".

    It is a collection of articles, so it might not be easy to follow.

    It will be fine.

    In a couple days, much of the stock will stabilize enough to glue up. Drawers are made from all sorts of species.

    Poplar is my favorite.

    If the plate has a pattern of diamond (like my Atoma), repeated passes in the same direction will leave an obvious scoring "line".
