This past week I began working on a deluxe quadrate rod. I really enjoy how the strips plane out, the ammonia has an effect that I would characterize as fusing the fibers pickling. Below are two videos of the basic hand planing process. You'll notice, unlike planing a hex strips, quad strips require a second form since the strips that form the square are isosceles triangles. Quadrate strips only have two sides of equal length, rather than all three sides like an equilateral triangle that create a hexagon.
