I work with walnut and poplar mainly sometimes mahogany.
But I have a hard time figuring out which direction the wood gain is running.
I’ve tried the brush trick and any thing I could find on the net. With these woods it’s like impossible to tell. The only clue I have is after my router tears out a chunk and then it’s too late. I just screwed up two long boards. After finally getting it right, I ended up loosing about ¼” on each board.
Poplar is the worst even more so than walnut.
Is there some sort of digital device that I can use to get this right?
