I'm glad you both said something because I never even considered that after seeing how things were joined together there with pegs through holes. I don't have a metal detector but luckily a buddy of mine does

Brandon; I won't use my routers on pre-used wood; I don't trust it.
I've mentioned here in the past, running a really nice piece of salvaged D. Fir (ripping) through my tablesaw and utterly destroying an $80 carbide saw blade. No injuries but man, I was some p***ed at myself for having done it!

Good catch on the metal detector. However, small stones can also be imbedded in reclaimed wood. All it takes is a little chip in a blade or bit and it's toast, and that's what rocks do. So I also suggest you work over the surface with a wire brush as well. A set of jointer or planer blades for example cost $45-50 and up, a good resaw blade for a band saw runs from $50 to hundreds of dollars. Use slow passes with the metal detector and keep it close to the surface.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.
