Re: Practical relevance of surface appearance

I am not sure that I could be clearer.

If someone put glasses of wine in front of me from an $8 bottle and an $80 dollar bottle, I might not know the difference. This is understandable because I only drink wine on a few occasions a year.

If you are used to looking at hand planed surfaces all the time you can see the difference. If you cannot tell the difference, it is nothing to be ashamed of, but also nothing to brag about.
