That’s a great looking result! Good job. Nice video.

Nice job on the belt sander, but why wouldn’t you just use a circular saw and a straight edge to get it close? Then you could use an orbital sander to finish it off.

It was a hard cut, 3” thick. My circular only cuts 2 1/2” and the maple is hard as rock.

Alright, even this galoot has to admit, that’s just cool. Maple end-grain on a piece that big would not be much fun to plane by hand.
