I deploy in a few days and need to have some panels planned down for some cabinet doors. Trouble is, I can’t find any one with a 20’’ or bigger plainer. All I have is a 13’’. Any one in the Oklahoma City, OK area would be great.

First thank you for your service! Call around to cabinet shops they have the big equipment and they wont charge that much. or you can make a router sled those work well.

As a professional I have a small flexible shop. When material gets too big for my equipment I use the other pro shops that are dedicated to cabinetry like noknot suggested. They have industrial sized sanders and planers.

I just pay them to do it and it is worth the money.

all i have is a 12.5 delta. I would suggest the same thing about finding a cabinet shop in the city i am sure one of them has a 20 inch planer that they would be willing to let you pay to use.

Thanks for all the support. I have looked and called a lot of cabinet makers in town and some how none have a big planer it seems to be that they sand down any thing large. I would sand them down like that but 1/4’’ is a lot to take off with a drum sander. Well back to scratching my head.

Our local hardwood dealer will plane for a fee. Pehaps you can check for a lumber dealer in the Oklahoma City area. Most of those around here have 48” planers.

I know that White and Son Hardwoods in Tulsa has a large 20” planner and a 24” sander. He has done some stuff for me in the past.
