Abstract

The effect of planing on Pinus radiata wood cells and penetration of PVA glue was examined by light microscopy and scanning and transmission electron microscopy. After planing with dull knives the wood cells were greatly distorted and cell walls were extensively damaged, particularly at and near the glue line. In comparison, sharp knives caused much less damage to cell walls and the cells had a normal or near-normal appearance. These features are discussed in detail in relation to glue penetration and the performance of glue joints after planing with sharp and dull knives.
