This is a quick run down of one way to go from rather large Walnut slabs to a beautiful dining table top. By using large vintage woodworking machinery and new world wood working tools I take two 22’’ wide 2.5’’ thick Walnut slabs from rough raw lumber to a soon to be dining table top.

Man, that planer takes a LONG time to spool up! Must be nice to have 3 phase power available to you!

Paul, Nice vid and will be an awesome tabletop. I now have a serious case of tool envy: tracksaw and domino thingy are cool but that PLANER! Sounds like a 747 taking off. And the huge jointer…........

Thats some gear you have there, I wanted to have a look at them in your workshop post but there is none,
Possibly due to the fact it would crash the LJ website an sheer size alone.

I would possibly cause a blackout in the area if I tried to run some thing like that, being of course if I was even able to find something that big for starters!

As always an impressive post, a definate tool and timber envy generator thats for sure!
