Hello. I’m new to Knots. Just bought some maple lumber I intend to recycle into a workbench. It has flat black latex paint on some surfaces. Is it worth the extra effort to scrape it, or strip it? Or can I just run it through my (new) portable planer to clean it up? Not sure how much damage it’ll do to the blades.
I tried searching for this, but didn’t find anything. Maybe my search skills aren’t so hot.
