Inspired by oldskoolmodder’s “Router Thickness “Planer” on the Cheap”, I did this so I could flatten cutting boards but I suspect it will come in handy for many other applications. Pretty simple concept. It took a little tweaking to get the rails level but a few pieces of electrical tape leveled it out quite well. The base is 3/4 ply. The vertical walls and frame for the rails are oak. Rails are steel angle I found in the back of the warehouse at work! I still need to take a cutoff wheel to the screws protruding from the rails. You’d think I would have done that after the first time I caught my finger on them…but the excitement of getting the jig to work kind of took over! I’ll post the cutting boards in a few days.
Thanks for looking!
