I'll have to go watch it again but I didn't think he used glue on the pocket hole joints for this test since so many projects online don't.
This is absolutely true. FWW's test is at the end of the wood piece whereas MW's is in the middle and on face grain, not edge grain.
Nice job, Wade. You made purpleheart look about as good as purpleheart can look. That anigre is pretty cool stuff...I have access to it but I've never used it.
Have you broken the bad news about the color change coming down the road?
Well done, it's a nice piece and I'm sure she'll love it.
That's an apples to oranges comparison, gee-dub. The face grain in MW's test is much stronger than the edge grain in FWW's test. Think about the way wood wants to cleave and the failure in both make sense.
