This is not a completed project but the process of dressing a slab to make a bar top… Just a slab of Eucalyptus. not sure exactly? .
Because the slab was a little longer than the table . I had to do half and then rearrange the slab to do the other half.

Here is a shot of the three flute cutter head.. 55 mm diameter,, I have removed the dust extractor shroud to be able to show you the cutter..

As you can see I used a few strips of ply screwed to the table to hold the slab steady.


A little turps to bring out the color and grain,, sweet!

Yes Bob and it worked like a treat,, 16 inches wide ,, too much for the 15 ” thicknesser and not actually flat, so I had to shim to make it stable.. then dress one face flat and then turn it over.

Way to make use of what you have. See you didn’t need to buy a new tool this week.

Hey Larry,
That tool has un-limited possibilities especially with multi-tipped carbide inserts…....cool.
Let me know if you need inserts.
