Woodworkers who glue boards together always need to contend with the slippage caused by wood glue in trying to keep boards aligned during glue-ups, one way of doing this is to use small amounts of salt or other grits to make the boards adhere better and in this video I am testing a few different grits to see how well they work.

Colin, thanks for doing this test. I always wondered about it affecting the glue. The other grits would destroy planer blades whereas salt would not since it melts into the glue.

Mark McCluney says:

I suppose if you use salt you've got well seasoned wood right there. Geddit?

I have learned so much from watching you. Even if I am just made of cloth and stuffing.
