There is a large removable leaf at each end of the table. I cut these apart using a Festool TS55, but since that time the wood has moved some and I need to re-do the joint to get it as tight as possible. There are also some saw marks left behind that I’d like to clean up.
The Lie-Nielsen #62 is just awesome at working end grain. Make sure to really sharpen that blade first. The low angle pulls off end grain shavings! The whole leaf is clamped securely to my workbench as I work the end.
Here’s a closeup of saw marks being removed using a hand plane.
I can’t get enough of end grain shavings. Love ’em.
