A friend gave me some cherry that his grandfather cut and milled from the 20s or 30s. It’s as solid now as it was the day it was cut. Proper storage is key.

Just a thought on the planer gear box oil. Like any other oil, there is most likely a shelf life on the oil itself, so even if us hobbyists don’t reach the hour change intervals it is probably best to change it every 10 years or so to prevent the oil breaking down and being less effective.
