The boards are going to be planed to create a smooth surface. If you run the board through the machine with bits of metal still in the wood from screws & staples you can mess up the blade of the planer. So…
We marked all the spots that set off the metal detector and then drilled out all those places and the existing screw holes.
Here they are filled with our specially-concocted wood putty!
(((About that… we bought a black colored wood putty to try. It NEVER dried. The India ink, wood glue & wood putty did the trick though!)))
Till next time.
