I noticed a phenomenon today that surprised me. I was planing walnut and red oak through a portable planer and noticed that the red oak was come out thicker than the walnut even though they were run through at the same setting. I measured ~ 0.01″ difference. That surprised me, so I verified the differences several times. Has anyone else noticed this, or maybe I’m just nutz.
