    Using a diamond blade on steel is a waste of a diamond blade. The diamond, carbon, is soluble in the steel, iron.

    HD has some small 'project panels'. I've assumed they're BB, but I'm not sure if I've ever even looked at them.

    I'm not in any way a furniture maker, but I'd guess this is another reason to use rift sawn material for legs in addition to creating a consistent appearance on the faces.
